## 31 August Science 7–graphing motion in the “staged races”

Change groups 2. Compare graphs–each person in turn presents. Use the following list to check each graph: (open data tables when you are reviewing each other’s graphs: Period 8 period8stagedraces (table in word) Staged races period 8 (excel spreadsheet) Period 6 Stagedracingperiod6 New groups Name … Continue reading

## 28 August Science 8 Continuing with matter–density, solubility, crystallization, conceptualizations

Finish densities Record your results in the spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/a/aes.ac.in/spreadsheets/d/1BISw2rAmGLsmgxtSZdOQLBgSGE-_ELRPTEVBhnkB1lo/edit?usp=sharing Be very careful NOT to interfere with any students’ results. Everyone with the link has editing privileges. This will work if we are all respectful and collaborative. Compare densities / discuss questions … Continue reading

## 27 August Science 7 Motion probe and analyzing the staged races data

Respond to the motion probe “How far did it go?” Individually. Take a picture of your completed sheet for your digital science notebook. When each person in your group is finished, discuss each answer and decide collaboratively what the best … Continue reading

## 25 August Science 7 Observing, Measuring, Analyzing Motion–Staged Races

Today we will begin learning how to observe, measure, and analyze motion. It is important for you to watch, listen, participate, record notes, ask questions, and think about the new ideas. Distance Time Average speed

## 24 & 26 August Science 8–Quantities of matter

26 August: Continue finding the densities of the liquids / solutions. Be sure to write about the questions: *Questions for reflection from the density activity: When you have determined the densities of the different liquids and solutions, describe your ideas … Continue reading

## Science 7, 19 and 21 August Continuing with the toy car investigations

Each group will present today after finishing the investigations. Finish as much of the quantitative investigation(s) as you can. Organize your findings / results. In particular: What is the relationship between the angle of the slope and the time to … Continue reading

## 18 & 20 August Science 8–Cutting matter down to size

Show off the periodic table app you have found. Discuss what you have learned. Just how big might a particle of matter be? Cutting matter down to size. Find the mass of the small plastic dish. Take one crystal of … Continue reading
