Then we drew pictures of how gravity is depicted in our textbook: Bookwork gravitation.docx
Next, I showed a brief intro to universal gravitation. 1 Gravity's constant intro.pptx
I wanted them to realize that the universal gravitation constant is similar to "pi=3.14" and "acceleration due to gravity=9.8 m/s2" being constants.
With the document camera, I demonstrated and they watched: Warmup for Various constants WS.docx
and then they did Various constants WS.docx . My special ed kids really had difficulty with this.
How did the formula come into being? 2 brief history of timekeeping & shadows.pptx &
We were then ready to do the math! Math of gravity WS.docx
We also learned briefly about proportionality Proportions d,m1 & m2.pptx
