Students began today with a bellringer on relative motion, which will be on our Friday quiz. In periods 1, 2, 3, and 4 we began collecting Data for our cars to see if they move at a steady rate or if they move at a changing rate. Students used meter sticks, strips of whiteboard, timers, and our buggies to determine the motion of the cars, which we’ll discuss tomorrow. Periods 6 and 7 worked today to begin their observations for the lab and to determine their research question, which will begin tomorrow.

HOMEWORK: Quiz Friday over relative motion and the buggy lab, and good measurement skills.
Periods 1-4: Analyze data and determine what your conclusion is for tomorrow’s mini-presentation of your results.
Periods 6 and 7: Read directions on the Buggy lab basic directions
