Monday, Dec 16Students will learn to describe forces from their experience with magnets. We will use this website as well. Then they will look at the four fundamental forces of nature.
Tuesday, Dec 17We will finish our investigation into the four fundamental forces of nature and then focus specifically on gravity.
Wednesday, Dec 18
The students will measure the acceleration of gravity on Earth using bouncy balls.
Thursday, Dec 19
We will compare yesterday's value of gravity's acceleration with the one we get using pendulums.
Friday, Dec 20The students will finalize their analysis of the last two day's labs to agree on Earth's gravitational constant. They will compare their answer with one they get with this online simulation.
