AP Physics: Flying Pig
Today, I got out the flying pig for a lab practical. I had students measure the length of the string and the height of the cone, then use what they know about forces and circular motion to predict the time for the pig to make 10 revolutions.
Physical Science: Quiz
Students took a quiz on magnetism. Afterward, we took a few minutes to review vocabulary for talking about waves that students learned during first trimester. It was pretty teacher directed, but I didn’t want to spend much time on terms students should have mastered earlier this year.
