1Day 6 2-7-11 Topic: Spark Timer Analysis & Reflection Objective: I will analyze the data and graph created by the “Lab”.Science Starter: Which chunk of wood will hit the ground first. Explain why. Use the words acceleration, gravity, and mass in your explanation.7 kg5 kg5 kg3 kg
2Monday's Agenda1. Starter – Objects of differing masses will accelerate toward the ground at the same rate of acceleration due to gravity (7 min)2. QUICK review of analyzing graphs (2 min)3. Analyze and reflect on what we observed during the spark timer lab (15 min)4. Peer Presentation & Assessment of a partner's graph and written response.(20 min)5. *Ongoing Assignment: CPO Text Questions
3Recall: Interpreting a Graph Observe the curved XT graph and the corresponding VT graph below.Observe:1. Slope of XT gives VELOCITY2. Slope tangent lines are increasing.3. Therefore, VELOCITY is increasing
4Spark Timer Lab Reflection What 2 variables are represented by the axes of the graph? This graph represents the relationship between...What does the slope of an X-t graph tell us?The slope of an X-t graph...What does the slope of a V-t graph tell us?The slope of a V-t graph...What does the graph indicate about the velocity of the object you dropped? The graph indicates that...I know this because...What does the slope of this graph represent about the rate of acceleration of the object? The slope represents how the acceleration of the object...I know this because...What is responsible for the acceleration of an object in free fall?Acceleration of an object in free fall is due to...I know this because...I could prove this by...
5Peer Presentation & Assessment Partner 1 (window side):Display your graphRead each questionRead your response to each questionPartner 2 (door side)Listen respectfully & carefullyAsk 1 or 2 appropriate questions“How do you that... … ...”Complete the Assessment/Grading RubricSWITCH ROLES
7Read section 2.3 p.39-42COPY the questions into your NOTEBOOK 1ST; Then respond in complete sentences.1. Describe the motion of a freely falling object. Use the words speed, acceleration in your answer.2. What is the difference between mass and weight?3. If you drop a feather and a baseball in a place where there is no air (a vacuum), how will their motions compare?4. Can an object have a speed of zero while it has an acceleration that is not zero? Explain.5. An astronaut carries a rock from the moon to Earth. Is the rock’s mass the same on Earth as on the moon? Is its weight the same? Explain.6. What is the direction of air resistance on a falling object?
