Learned how to Diagram motion with dots and arrows to show away, towards, speeding up, slowing down, and everything in betwee.

Learned differences between Position-Displacement, Speed-Velocity, Time-Velocity

This was the motion we calculated in the water balloon project, to find when we needed to fire to hit the moving target, taking into account the arch of the balloon.

Calculated Momentum of the tasty projectile using Logger Pro.

Force - causes Acceleration

Momentum - Mass x Velocity

I learned how pulling back the launcher gave us potential energy, which was transferred to kinetic energy when released.

Energy is never created or destroyed, it is always transferred from one form to another

We learned about Gravitational, Kinetic, and Elastic Energy.

We have shared Videos with each to show that everything is related to physics, from rock-climbing/dancing to the Snipers Bullet.

Also done with Neat Videos, to show all types of different activites, and relate them to physics.

This was done repeatedly with the cop & Perp problem, the Marshmallow Launchers, the theoretical Waterballoon launcher, etc.

This was done very effectively, whcih I was very surprised with. I guess it IS possible to work with people that you never meet in person!
