In the first part of class we looked at some examples of Newton’s 1st Law. I did a few classic N1L (inertia) demo’s. I’m sure most of you have seen this one:
I also had the students get involved. I made I ‘heart’ Physics book markers the students could earn by getting it out from underneath the dry erase marker without touching or disturbing the marker. Sort of a mini version of the table cloth demo.
After that, they rode our giant hovercraft of physics (sorry, no photos).
We also did a bit of WB’ing on a practice sheet that made use of motion pillars. Here is an example:
We did not quite finish, so that is where we will pick up tomorrow.
We finished the phan cart predictions and continued to practice solving constant acceleration problems with a v-t graph. As of yet, the generals have no kinematic equations for constant acceleration.
