The students will be doing a lab to demonstrate how to reduce the effects of a collision and a lab to demonstrate their knowledge of collisions and Newtons laws.

The students will learn about the relation between gravity weight and mass and how to calculate the different effects of mass and distance on how gravity affects objects. The students will also learn about friction and what you can do to increase or decrease friction in different circumstances and how friction affects motion. We will also cover other forces that act falling objects other than gravity. The students will also be expected to learn the vocabulary for the week.

This week in class we will be taking what we learned last week and putting it to practice. The students will be designing model cars to measure velocity, acceleration, speed and distance. We will go over how different modifications to the car can change the results of the cars performance. The students will take the information the they get from testing their cars and will make different graphs to show them what changes gave them the most positive results. The students will also be quizzed on the information they learned this week and last. They will also be expected to learn the vocabulary.

Vocabulary

    • Force
    • Newton
    • Velocity
    • Acceleration
