Yesterday we had ACT testing for juniors. Seniors had an off-campus learning day.
AP Physics 1: Central Net Force Board Meeting
For yesterday’s off-campus learning day, my students finished collecting data in Pivot Interactives on central net forces. I really enjoyed the discussion of the force vs. mass graphs, when the class realized the units on the slope were the units on acceleration, so we had F=ma.
Physics: Snakey Springs
Students used the snakey springs to collect data on a relationship between frequency and wavelength for standing waves.
Chemistry Essentials: Molar Mass
Students used nuts, bolts, and washers to represent different elements in order to discover how to find the molar mass of a compound. Afterward, they tried extending what they’d found to actual compounds. Not only were they very successful at extending their results, their work represented different ways of thinking about polyatomic ions, which was cool.
