11/17/17 Nature of Magnetism


Objective(s): I can use data to draw conclusions about forces in a system that can be either contact or non-contact forces.


NGSS: MS-PS3-2. Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.

MS-PS2-3. Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces.

MS-PS2-5. Conduct an investigation and evaluate the experimental design to provide evidence that fields exist between objects exerting forces on each other even though the objects are not in contact.



Agenda

I) Warm-Up "Get your PS Chap 9 Sec 4 RR out for corrections."

II) Check PS Chap 9 Sec 4 RR

-------> To be completed in class. <----------

III) Read ops Chap 11 Sec 1 in class

Objective(s): Pick no more than two(2) out of five(5) standards from the First Quarter Benchmark and do better than the last score.


NGSS:

MS-PS2-2. Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.

MS-PS2-4. Construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive and depend on the masses of interacting objects.

MS-PS2-1. Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects.

MS-PS 3-1 I can collect and interpret data that describes the relationship between Mass, Speed and kinetic Energy and then construct a world view.
