Day 107: Experimental Design, Conservation of Momentum, & Particle Diagrams

I had a sub for half the day today.

AP Physics: Experimental Design

Students worked on an experimental design problem off the 2017 AP Physics 1 exam, then did their choice of problems from a packet involving multiple models.

Physics: Conservation of Momentum

Students started working on some problems using conservation of momentum. In the hour I was here for, students were much more confident than I’ve seen them on new problem types all year, which was exciting. When I talked to groups, a lot of them were using connections to energy conservation to think through the problems.

Chemistry Essentials: Particle Diagrams

Students reviewed sketching particle diagrams. A lot of students have struggled with these this year and tend to loose track of what a particle diagram is intended to represent, so I want to make sure they get one more shot before the final
