1. Re-design: Decide what you would like to re-design on your bottle rocket. Do you need to change the fins? Does the weight need to be distributed differently? Then you can make the changes.
2. Re-launch: Decide how much water/air you would like in the rocket and what you think will happen?
3. We will go out to the garden and do re-launches. Fill out the mini worksheet to help with your conclusion later.
3. When we come back inside, you have the remaining time to work on your final lab report for the bottle rocket launch. Your final lab report needs to be uploaded to your google site. Then you will email me the link to your google site and I will grade your lab report.
Below are all the quizzes and practice worksheets we have done this quarter in Physics. Please use these to help study for your final exam on the following dates:
Thursday, March 6: Hawaii
Monday, March 10: Niihau, Molokai
Tuesday, March 11: Kauai, Lanai
Other topics that you should be familiar with are:
-Newton's 1st, 2nd, and 3rd law
-The units for all the things you are calculating
-The calculations we worked on during the egg drop competition and bottle rocket launches
Please start studying early for the most success on the final exam. If you need help with equations and units, look for the answers in the previous weebly posts from when we learned it in class. Then if you can't find it, then you can ask me for help. Please use your resources
1. Pass back papers.
2. Give student's 10 minute to fix up their rockets for launching and WEIGH your bottle rocket in kg.
3. Pass out "Bottle Rocket Launch Data" worksheet and explain how to collect data.
4. Review safety procedure of rocket launching: http://exploration.grc.nasa.gov/education/rocket/BottleRocket/safety.htm
5. Welcome parents who are watching our launches.
6. Launch rockets and collect data
7. Left over time: go back to classroom and work on finishing worksheet.
Using the "absent data for bottle rocket launch", complete the rest of the data and conclusion part of the worksheet. Pick a team to be your data for the conclusion. Please make sure you are clear on your paper which team's data you are using.
1. Collect homework: "Egg drop competition final worksheet" and "Newton's 2nd Law and Acceleration Quiz"
2. Pass out "Winter Olympics and Physics" worksheet. This due in class today.
3. Watch the following videos and answer the questions on your worksheet.

4. Explain the stations on the worksheet.
5. We will go out to Kalama Park for the stations. (If it is raining, we will stay at school and do the stations under the covered area in front of school or stay inside.)
Extra credit- 5 points
Write a summary on a news article about the Winter Olympics. The summary must include details about the event and how it relates to science. I will be grading it on your understanding of what you learned in science class and how you relate it to your article.
The summary must have:
- at least 1 paragraph
-include the link to the original article
-the news article must be from the 2014 Winter Olympics
-emailed to Ms. Molina by Sunday, Feb. 23 at midnight.
Please be sure to turn in all your homework ASAP to me. Watch the video links under #3 on the agenda and take notes.
1. Pass back egg drop competition entry forms and other papers.
2. Check off the remaining homework from last class: Newton's acceleration problems.
2. Pass out and explain the take home quiz and write homework in planner.
3. Explain the egg drop competition final worksheet and how the competition will work outside. NEED: worksheet, calculator, clipboard, pencil
-Everyone will get 10 minutes to tape their egg in and then they will all set them by the ladder in order of drop. (After they tape they aren't allowed to touch the apparatus anymore)
4. Award presentation for: least mass/surviving egg, most creative, green award
5. Left over time: start homework
Rules for take home quiz
1. You can't use help from people.
2. You can use a calculator.
3. You can use any of your worksheets and notes from class.
4. The only website you can use is weebly.
5. You must complete the quiz in one time frame.
1. Using the "absent data for egg drop competition", complete the rest of the data and conclusion part of the worksheet. Pick a team to be your data for the conclusion. Please make sure you are clear on your paper which team's data you are using.
2. Take home "Newton's 2nd law and acceleration quiz". Please see document and rules above.
1. Finish egg apparatus. You will get an egg the day of the competition.
2. When you finish your apparatus, weigh your apparatus and let Ms. Molina know your weight. Don't forget to add the average weight of egg.
3. Vote for "most creative" and "most green" awards.
4. Start acceleration practice problems. ***check your answers with answer key above!***
Check in with your partner about the status of your egg drop apparatus. Do the acceleration practice problems above.
1. Go over Kinetic energy and Potential energy quiz. If you have not taken the quiz, you will take it at this time.
2. Learn about Newton's second law and work on practice problems. Check your answers with the answer key too!
3. Start constructing your egg drop apparatus. You will be given very little time next class to finish it up before the egg drop competition.
Do the homework above and check in with your egg drop group on what they did in class.
