Today we first started to work on our bar chart packets. They have to be done by today, or you have to come in during study hall or homeroom. If you were absent, then check with your group to get the answers.
Then, Mr. Finley called up our groups to check our homework, the bar charts for the skier problem and lifting a ball problem.
To check this we are going up to Mr. Finley computer with our groups. We are to view two PowerPoints with all of the answers on it, and compare our answers. This will be available tomorrow as well, so don't worry if you didn't get to it.
Then we were called up to the front by groups to be told about a project. We have to watch a video about an elephant jumping on a trampoline, see 5 thing in the video that relate to energy, and choose 2 that you can analyze and share in class. We have to draw or describe initial and final states. Then we have to include your choice of a system. Third, we have to create three different representations that show the changes of energy that occurred. You can use a picture, bar chart, number statement, descriptions, etc. Finally we have to answer if the the elephant situation is realistic in terms of physics and energy. Remember, this is a group project. You don't need to start it at home.
Here is the video:
Tonight's homework is:
Nothing as of 4:30. As we all know, Mr. Finley posts homework by 4:00 so it is safe to day there is no homework.
