This is your assignment for Spring Break. Due upon your return. Performances will be on Monday, April 3rd. If you haven't seen the video, use the link <-- to solve that problem.
It is about that time to wrap-up Unit 2: Forces and Motion. We have covered a variety of information ranging from observing and measuring motion to the changes in motion that are caused by a variety of different forces. We have created force diagrams covering a variety of interactions by using force vectors and force labels to explain motion. We even performed 3 Force related projects through it all, Water Rockets, Catapults, and Mouse Trap Race Cars. By now you all have a solid Physics background in regards to Forces and Motion.
Below are links to a variety of Forces and Motion study tools and online quizzes and games. Read the description for each. Other review material will be given out as a hard copy. The Forces and Motion Unit Exam will be on Tuesday, March 14th and will cover the content learned throughout the entire unit. Please prepare yourself by reviewing your science notebook from this entire unit. Your understanding of the metric system from unit 1 will be included in some of the questions so be sure to tap into your memory of the various metric units we have covered as well as which measurement they represent.
Things to focus on in your science notebook are LOS words and BIG IDEAS. Also, review your Cornell Notes and Lab activities to review your understanding of concepts focused on during the each lab activity. Remember, each focus question is there to "focus" your learning and engagement to a specific concept. Review all of your focus questions and you should be able to clearly answer each one using evidence from each activity.
Important formulas to remember are listed below. Each formula should be able to be reversed to solve for missing variables. Ex: Distance = Speed x Time
Speed = Distance/Time
Acceleration = Final Velocity - Starting Velocity
Force = Mass x Acceleration
Pressure = Force/Area
Density = Mass/Volume

Speed vs. Time graphs
