Centripetal Force is a topic on which (this year) we spent little time.
It's fun and useful but I have very little original stuff for this unit.
Students then proved that they understood with: 1st day of centripetal motion WS.docx
The next day, we did a fun lab: Pennies in cup LAB (centripetal).docx
At some point, I showed: Ch 9 physics ppt.pptx I probably only showed bits and pieces of it. It's too long.
Then I said, we're having a scavenger hunt.
They received the worksheet, WS 2 for Centripetal Jan 6, 2016.docx
but some of the data on the worksheet can only be found on WS 2 for Centripetal Photos for the lab.pptx
which were printed and scattered around the lab tables.
So they got the data and then solved the problems.
On the fourth day: We looked at ropes ratings for ropes.pptx to understand the meaning of centripetal force.
And then we did the lab: Centripetal Lab #2.doc
