    7th Week of the 3rd Quarter: February 19 through February 23

    We are learning about the PHYSICS of the WINTER OLYMPICS

    Also, for Black History Month ... we watched Hidden Figures and will reflect and write about the PHYSICS in the movie and other documentary resources; so many issues in the movie that are still relevant today including but not limited to:

    - equal rights for women; people of color;  job advancement and pay; the science and math involved in technological advancement; working as a team; national pride; national security; computers and people

    Make sure you check Google Classroom regularly and complete all assignents on Sapling.

    NEWTON's LAWS

    newton

     
     
    Scientific Method - Scientific Notation - Nature of Science - Conservation and Proper Disposal
     
     - Qualitative / Quantitative - Ethics in Science - Mass - Length - Volume - Density 
     
    Speed - Velocity - Acceleration - Distance - Displacement - Objective - Subjective - Data Collection - Tables - Graphs
     
    Inertia - Force equals Mass Times Acceleration - REST stays at REST - MOTION stays in MOTION (unless and outside force acts upon it) - Newton's 3rd Law states that for every action ... there is an equal and opposte reaction
     
    Parabolic or Parabola = pattern of a projectile
