Paper Airplane Designs

Paper Airplane Lab

Aerodynamics of Flight Simulation

September 21th-25th, 2015 - Introduced graphing capabilites (charts) in spreadsheets using Numbers App. Made 3 column spreadsheet with Manipulated Variable in first column and Responding Variables in column 2 & 3. Made scatter plot line graph of data from Burning Candle Lab comparing length of wax and flame over 30 sec intervals of time.

Introduced function capabilites in spreadsheets using Numbers App. Graphed data from Paper Airplane Lab including the AVERAGE "hang time" for original paper airplaned and the modified plane designed to stay in the air longer. Took a 40-question, multiple choice test on Chapter 1.

September 14th-18th, 2015 - Introduced the concept of Innovation through the book and video by local author Steven Johnson- How we got to now-6 Innovations that made the Modern World. Introduced Inquiry Project-Assign Yourself 1st Trimester. Begin with the motivation to grow the largest pumpkin this Halloween using "GROW-X" study of pumpkin sprouts. Created a controlled experiment testing 1 Manipulated Variable (Grow-X) and collecting 1 piece of Quantified data our Responding Variable (lenth of pumpkin shoot). Made 4 dilutions of Grox-X solutions + 1 CONTROL (no manipulated variable present) Demonstrated how to create a data table (spreadsheet) that can chart (graph) data from our experiment.

Choosing a topic was discussed as both vital and as evolving from need or curiosity- a sport, hobby or skill, access to equipment/supplies, mentorship by others, etc. Created a Google Document- THE AY#1 Template- each student has a copy that can be shared and edited by any support person. This template includes - 10 Steps To Great Projects, Database Research Links, Timelog Digital Spreadsheet with Timelog Function, Digital Proposal Form to be signed by Parents

September 8th-11th, 2015 -Review METRIC MEASUREMENT - Meter, Liter, Gram, Newton. Pass out safety contract for parent signature tonight.

Introduce Metric Me assignment due Sunday night, September 13th, 2015. Metric Me work periods each day. Identify mistakes in both precision and accuracy. Remeasurements may be required. Support provided for mapping out facial features and plotting of skeleton "blue print"

We reviewed that our weight is a force (a push or pull)that is determined by both our mass and the acceleration due to gravity that keeps us on the ground. Weight is considered a variable and derived quantity. Mass is the amount of matter in an object and is expressed in units of grams or kilograms. Mass is constant and does not change with location. All objects with mass exert a force of attraction on other objects. This force of attraction is called gravity. Gravity is a function of the mass of the objects and the distance between the objects. The earth has a mass that is six times greater than the mass of the moon. All objects accelerate towards earth at a rate of 9.8 meters per second each second. Acceleration on the moon is only 1.62 meters per second each second. Weight is the force exerted by one mass on to another. For example, each step you take on earth can be measured as a force equal to your weight. The scientific unit for weight is the Newton (N)after our old friend Isaac Newton. You can determine your weight by multiplying your mass in kilograms by the acceleration due to gravity. This formula is also know as Newton's Second Law of Motion. To calculate our weight we must multiply our mass in kilograms times the force of gravity. Here on Earth everything accelerates towards Earth at a rate of 9.8 m/sec/sec. Ms Eagle showed a 1kg mass on a spring scale registering 9.8 Newtons!!! Therefore 1 Newton is equal to 1 Kg-m/sec/sec

September 2nd-3rd, 2015 - Make qualitative, quantitative observation about your shoes and practice using your observations to make an inference or deduction about your shoes. Refer to the Sherlock at Home experiment discuss observation and inferences about why the paper stayed dry. Introduce the concept in physics that no 2 pieces of MATTER can occupy the same space at the same time. Matter occupying space fabric creates gravity and that force is DIRECTLY proportional to its MASS and INDIRECTLY proportional to the square of the distance between any 2 MASSES. DISPLACEMENT is the action in which a FLUID (gas or liquid) is used to deduce the volume of an object submersed in it.We will determine the volume in cubic centimeters by deducing it from the volume of water in milliliters displaced when it is place in a WATER DISPLACEMENT CUP and we catch the displaced fluid in a graduated cylinder. Watch an laboratory equipment and safety video in class. Received the Science Equipment and Safety Rules for Science Class.

September 1st, 2015 - Use codes above to join Ms Eagle's Physical Science Google Classroom, Review text pages from last night, Observations (qualitative vs quantitative), Predicting, Infering, Deduction, Read excerpt from Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - The Science of Deduction, Tonight "Sherlock At Home" Explain Everything App due Thursday.
