Physics Class work for Wed Jan 26 through Tue Feb 1st 2011

Working in groups. Use all 7 computers. Groups should be no bigger than 4 people with one group of 5 where needed.

Lesson 3 – Universal Gravitation
Lesson 4 – Planetary and Satellite Motion

Go through all parts of both lessons. Read all of each lesson. Try the “Check your understanding” questions. Do all of the animations. Try the sample problems on your own. This should take you quite a while to go through it thoroughly and completely. This should not be done in one class.

Each group must submit a Word document, will all of the names of the group members at the top, and the date, with a summary of what you learned that day. Include any questions you answered and any questions you have or things that you don’t understand. Email me this Word document at the end of the class (dandrade@bridgeportedu.net). You must email me each day, even if you haven’t finished. I will post answers to questions and clarify things each night in the comments section under this post.

When you finish both of the lessons above, you move onto the next step.

2. Multimedia Science School – software on computer – on Novell screen. You have used this before.

 Click on Physics, Fields, Gravitational Fields, Lesson, Gravitation. Go through all 14 pages. Try out each simulation multiple times with different variables. Read all of the pages. Write up a summary of what you learned and what you saw happen in each simulation. Do NOT copy the summary from the software. Submit the summary and what you learned via email in a Word document. Include the names of everyone in your group and the date. Submit it each day, whether you have finished or not. Also include any questions you have or things you didn’t understand.

When you finish all of this, you move onto the next step.

Click “Run Now” and then follow the instructions on the lab sheet which you can download from here: https://sites.google.com/site/dandradeedusite/Home/physics-class-files  “Universal Gravitation PhET Lab.doc”. Add your names to the top of the document, fill in the data as you complete the lab, save the file and then email it to me when done. Do not print it out! (printer is still broken).

4. If and when you finish all of these assignments, you will be doing class work and solving problems. Turn these in when complete.
