Physics Lesson Plans Week of 11/2-11/6 Day 1 Essential Question: How can I predict where something will land? Learning Objective: Use graphical methods to determine a vector State Standard: SP1. Students will analyze the relationships between force, mass, gravity, and the motion of objects. f. Measure and calculate two-dimensional motion (projectile and circular) by using component vectors. Teaching and Learning Strategies Bellringer: Answer a Kahoot relating types of vectors Activator: Begin the “Conquest of the Seas” activity (also known as “Vector Battleship” Summarizer: Students should be able to explain how a (x,y) coordinate is related to a polar coordinate Differentiation: Small group work in determining vectors; Visual is the PowerPoint Notes Day 2 Essential Question: How can I tell where something will land? Learning Objective: Use graphical methods to determine a vector State Standard: SP1. Students will analyze the relationships between force, mass, gravity, and the motion of objects. f. Measure and calculate two-dimensional motion (projectile and circular) by using component vectors. Teaching and Learning Strategies Bellringer: Given the x- and y- component of a vector, determine the magnitude of the resultant Activator: Complete “Conquest of the sea” activity Students will learn how to take component vectors to make a resultant vector Summarizer: Students should be able to determine a resultant vector Differentiation: Group work Day 3 Essential Question: How can I tell where something will land? Learning Objective: Use kinematic equations to evaluate 2D motion State Standard: SP1. Students will analyze the relationships between force, mass, gravity, and the motion of objects. f. Measure and calculate two-dimensional motion (projectile and circular) by using component vectors. Teaching and Learning Strategies Bellringer: Given a vector, determine the x- and y-components Activator: Students will learn how to use vector components to determine the magnitude and direction of the resultant vector.
