Day 67: Introduction to Acceleration
College-Prep Physics: We had shortened periods today because of the early dismissal due to the storm. But we had a block today of two 30 minute periods.
First period (pictured above): Students were challenged to show with data that a battery rolling down a ramp was speeding up. Then we shared experimental methods and results. 3 different approaches came up, but none involved time as the independent variable. So…
Second period: Students were asked to design an experiment to determine the relationship between distance and time for the rolling battery.
