ESS2.2: Seismic Waves & Earth's Interior
Information about Earth's Interior: http://www.learner.org/interactives/dynamicearth/structure/ AND/OR
PS4.2: Behavior of Sound & Electromagnetic Waves (Reflection, Absorption, Transmission & Refraction)
PS4.2: Behavior of Sound Waves: Watch videos to see how sound waves behave differently (reflect, absorb, transmit or refract) when the wave encounters different mediums http://www.howaboutscience.com/sound2
PS4.1 Waves - Types & their Properties
PS4.1: Electromagnetic Waves & their Properties http://www.glencoe.com/sites/common_assets/science/virtual_labs/CT05/CT05.html
PS4.1: Game/Review looking at Wave Properties: http://www-g.eng.cam.ac.uk/mmg/teaching/peterstidwill/interact/resources/oceanodyssey.htm
PS4.1 Online Lab: Wave Properties: Amplitude, Frequency & Wavelength: While measuring these properties of a wave, students will discover the relationship between 1. wavelength and frequency and 2.amplitude and energy http://www.glencoe.com/sites/common_assets/science/virtual_labs/E05/E05.html
PS4.1: Relationship between Energy & Frequency and Energy & Amplitude: http://www.classzone.com/books/ml_science_share/vis_sim/wslm05_pg18_graph/wslm05_pg18_graph.html
- More energy = larger amplitude of wave
- More energy transferred in short period of time (High frequency) = short wavelength
TEST ON MONDAY for PS2.3-PS2.5
- Please watch EDpuzzle videos that start with "REVIEW FOR TEST MONDAY" to get additional help with topics you find difficult.
- Use Quizlet PS2.3 to review vocabulary that will be on the test.
- I have also created a practice test/review questions to see what you may still need to review for Monday. Go to Quizizz and enter code 538135
- Use the links below to review simulations we have completed in class that go along with completed in-class activities to help review difficult concepts like free body diagrams, forces, distance-time and velocity-time graphs.
PS2.4 & PS2.5: Newton's Laws of Motion
PS2.4 Newton's 2nd Law: What factors effect acceleration? https://www.physicsclassroom.com/Physics-Interactives/Newtons-Laws/Force/Force-Interactive
PS2.4: Rocket Sled Activity: Look at how friction affects the net force and movement of an object - Illustrates Newton's 1st & 2nd Laws: https://www.physicsclassroom.com/Physics-Interactives/Newtons-Laws/Rocket-Sledder/Rocket-Sledder-Interactive
PS2.3 Describing Motion Links
PS2.3 PhET Lab: Graphing Motion: Visualize how movement looks on a distance-time graph and a velocity-time graph. https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/moving-man
PS2.3 Graph that Motion!: Practice identifying the correct animation with the correct Distance-Time or Velocity-Time Graph. https://www.physicsclassroom.com/Physics-Interactives/1-D-Kinematics/Graph-That-Motion/Graph-That-Motion-Interactive
PS2.3 PhET Lab: Forces & Motion: Using "tug-of-war", understand how different forces in different positions on the rope effect the overall motion of the rope. https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/forces-and-motion-basics/latest/forces-and-motion-basics_en.html
PS2.1 Lab for Electromagnetic Induction: Use this to see how an electrical current is produced using a moving magnet and a coil of wire. https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/faradays-law --Be sure to DOWNLOAD and then open the file.
While I'm absent Monday & Tuesday, you will use these websites to complete activities as I discussed with you Friday.
