We added the formula for acceleration to our “speed” notes and then practiced solving for acceleration. Notes and worksheets here:

Acceleration notes and worksheet

I encouraged students to complete their lab and Acceleration worksheet for tomorrow (Friday). However, understanding schedules, I am letting students continue work over the weekend, if necessary. Both the speed lab and acceleration worksheets are due no later than Monday.

]]>Due Friday: WR #3, Unit 3.1 and ACE Chapter 3 problems 2 and 22-27.

Due Monday: mathxl unit 1 (TWMM)

]]>Students continued their Marble Speed lab today. Students should be working on their data analyses and conclusions, due Friday.

For the data analysis, students should identify any patterns within data tables and between data tables.

For the conclusion students should

- restate the purpose and hypothesis
- give an overview of the data
- state if the data proves or disproves the hypothesis based upon their data analysis (justify your answer based upon your data)
- Recognize any errors that might have impacted results

All late work was to be handed in today.

Students also received last week’s WR graded. Revisions must be done before the next quiz.
