Momentum And Motion, Christopher Sheffer Apr 2008

Momentum And Motion, Christopher Sheffer

Lesson Plans

Students will be able to calculate momentum using mass and velocity of an object. Students will demonstrate the conservation of momentum using the provided model.


Using Ti Calculator As Data Collector, Bruce Peachey Aug 2006

Using Ti Calculator As Data Collector, Bruce Peachey

Lesson Plans

Students will become familiar with using their graphing calculators as data collection devices. Students will explore the relationship between displacement, velocity, and acceleration and be able to relate characteristics of each of them graphically.


What Effects Water Waves?, David Rogers, Megan Bonacci, Cassandra Camman, Rose Kossow, Mike Sicienski Aug 2006

What Effects Water Waves?, David Rogers, Megan Bonacci, Cassandra Camman, Rose Kossow, Mike Sicienski

Lesson Plans

Students will discover that:

Waves come in mainly two different types (transverse and longitudinal)

How the type of wave, type of medium, wavelength, temperature, and depth effect the velocity of a wave

This relationship can be used to determine the distances to stars and galaxies beyond 100pc.


Exploring Kinematics With The Moving Man Simulation, Bruce Peachey Jul 2006

Exploring Kinematics With The Moving Man Simulation, Bruce Peachey

Lesson Plans

To learn the basics of position, velocity, and acceleration, and how they interact. To see how these quantities interact graphically; to graph them; and to interpret graphs of them


Newton`S Laws Using Interactive Physics, Kristin Larsen Jan 2006

Newton`S Laws Using Interactive Physics, Kristin Larsen

Lesson Plans

Interactive Physics was the perfect program to use for this project. Once explained to the students they were quick to learn it and create many models for each law. The applications in IP easily allowed us to create the types and directions of motions and forces needed to demonstrate each of Newton’s laws.


The Limits Of Removing Uncertainty: The Role Of Computational Science In Scientific Inquiry, Sean Metz Jan 2006

The Limits Of Removing Uncertainty: The Role Of Computational Science In Scientific Inquiry, Sean Metz

Lesson Plans

To understand the workings of each program utilized for this project, which are Interactive Physics, Fortran, Microsoft Excel.


Ballistics, Kristin Schwartzmeyer Apr 2005

Ballistics, Kristin Schwartzmeyer

Lesson Plans

This project demonstrates the laws of gravity as well as information about the distance and speed of an object being thrown or fired.


Roller Coaster Energy Audit –Conservation Of Energy, Steve Whitman Mar 2005

Roller Coaster Energy Audit –Conservation Of Energy, Steve Whitman

Lesson Plans

Goals:

To account for the mechanical energy of a ball rolling on the coaster

–potential energy (gravitational)

– kinetic energy

–energy lost to friction


Pool Table, Karthik Rajasesupathy, Davis Joki Jul 2003

Pool Table, Karthik Rajasesupathy, Davis Joki

Lesson Plans

This activity is used to show students how physics can be used in a life situation to better themselves at a game of billiards. This project shows how velocity, angles, action and reaction, elasticity, and the rules of pool interact together in a fun environment. The students would be able to change characteristics of this model to see how changing different parameters will change the outcome of the pool shot.


Mathematical Modeling, Motion Applications, Jerry Moon Jul 2003

Mathematical Modeling, Motion Applications, Jerry Moon

Lesson Plans

1.) Introduce Mathematical Modeling as a problem solving 2.) Identification of required information. 3.) Gain skills in obtaining information. 4.) Explore ideas of motion in relationship to velocity as a Rate of change and representation as a slope of a line. 5.) Show examples of constant motion as a linear relationship, And instantaneous velocity as a curved graph. 6.) To be able to explain the differences between average velocity, Average acceleration and instantaneous velocity by graph study. 7.)To devise simple mathematical models.


Mathematics Of Bungee Jumping, Helen Fox Jul 2003

Mathematics Of Bungee Jumping, Helen Fox

Lesson Plans

Upon completion of this lesson, students will:

  • create their own model of bungee jumping
  • analyze graphs comparing acceleration, distance, and speed versus time
