PLAN

OBJECTIVE

STRATEGIES

 1

-Assign project 2: Newton’s Car

-Assessment on vector velocity, average speed, acceleration and Newton’s 1st law

-Discussion/demonstration on forces, motions, graphs and the scientific method

-Students to work on next chapter

-To understand how different forces work and its influence on each other

-Understand the scientific method

-Cooperative group/team work

-Code call

-Science Jeopardy

2

-Finish Newton’s Car(Students compete with each other on best designs

-Assessment on forces, motions, graphs and scientific method

-Discuss/demonstration on gravity, friction, acceleration, weight, Newton’s 2nd&3rd law

-To motivate and encourage students to try harder

-Students will have “hands on” understanding of how different forces work and its influence on each other

-Deeper understanding of the scientific method

-Cooperative group/team work

-Code call

-Science Jeopardy

3

-Assign Project 3: Monster Truck

-Assessment on gravity, friction, acceleration, weight, and Newton’s 2nd and 3rd laws

-Students to work on next chapter

-To understand the engineering of utilizing different forces to move heavy object

-Deeper understanding of scientific method

-Cooperative group/team work

-Code call

-Science Jeopardy

4
