Newton's Laws in ______________

 

Newton's Laws of Motion in ____(insert your own topic here)______

For the next 5 or so days in class you will be working on your Newton's Laws Project.  You will be watching some videos to help you better understand Newton's laws of motion and then you will be coming up with your topic that you will use to show the laws of motion. 

For example, since I am a world renowned ballet dancer, I would be coming up with ways that I could show how Newton's laws of motion apply to ballet.  Using picture of me doing killer ballet moves to show my knowledge of Newton's laws. 

The first day you will be viewing some videos that show the laws of motion in various sports and completing video reflection sheets.  These videos are meant to give you another way of understanding Newton's laws, as well as help you come up with your own way of showing these laws.

For the rest of the time, you will be using the Smartboard software (smartNotebook), Power Point, or whatever program you like to make your own informational "booklet" on how Newton's laws of motion can be shown in your example activity. 

Your example can be a sport (like basketball, bowling, karate, extreme walking, etc), or some other activity that involves motion (Race cars, Machines, Artillery, Planetary Motion).  The possibilities are endless.

Note: You should not use hockey or football, unless you have talked with me first. 

 

______________________________________________________________________________

Schedule:(tasks are color coded below)
Day 1 & 2- Make a folder for this project in your Science Folder. View videos and complete reflection sheets.  Save the video reflection sheets in your Science Folder.

Due Before Moving On (Initialed By ME): 4 reflections (3- Newton's laws & 1- Friction) & Planning Sheet
 

Day 3- Finish your first page and submit it to me as a PDF into the SHARED FOLDER Labeled "Draft".  This is due at the end of day 3.

Days 4- 5 -  Work on Project. At the end of day 5 you should finish the project at hand in at the end of class.

Due at the end of Day 5: 4 pages on SmartNotebook, Power point, or whatever you have chosen showing how the three laws of motion and friction can be shown using your example.  Save as PDFs into the APPROPRIATE SHARED FOLDER AS YOUR LAST NAME-Finished Project

Days 6&7 -  Project Critique - see the bottom of this page for directions.
Due: 3 critiques of other's projects and a self-critique

___________________________________________________________________

Day 1&2- Laws of motion, Friction and Planning

Videos, Reflection Sheets and Planning Page


1. Watch the videos and
complete one reflection sheet for each law of motion.

      You have two choices here: You can watch all three different NFL (football) videos, Or you can watch the last video from the NHL (hockey) that covers all three laws.  --Remember to complete three video reflection sheets, one sheet for each law of motion.

a. Science of NFL Football: Newton's First Law of Motion

b. Science of NFL Football: Newton's Second Law of Motion

c. Science of NFL Football: Newton's Third Law of Motion

OR

a-c. Science of NHL Hockey: Newton's Three Laws of Motion


2- Watch the friction video (Science of winter games- curling) and complete the video reflection sheet for friction (attached below).

Friction Video: Science Friction: Curling

3. Planning Page
Now you are ready to start planning your SmartNotebook project.  You need to pick a topic (Ex: Baseball, Field Hockey, R&B Dance, Extream Kite-Flying or Jumping Off High Things) and start coming up with how you will show the laws of motion and friction using that topic.  The PDF for typing your planning page is attached below.

Homework Day 1 :
Your homework after day one is to watch video on two (2) of Newton's Laws (linked above) and complete two (2) reflections sheets (attached to the bottom of the page). 

- If you can't log onto FM Home Access, you could always complete the reflection sheets on a piece of paper (old- school style).

Homework Day 2 :

Complete the planning page for your project.  Read about the planning page up above if you have any questions.  The planning page is attached to the bottom of this page.

Day 1&2 Hand In:

EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE SAVED AS A PDF.  IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SAVE AS A PDF, THEN YOU NEED TO LET ME KNOW.

-All materials for Days 1&2 will be saved in the following STUDENT shared folder:
Kirby--> 2012-2013--> Newton's Laws Project--> Your Science Period--> Day 1&2 (PDF ONLY)--> Save as: Last Name-Document

- Example Name: Kirby- Newton's 1st Law Movie

- What needs to be save in the above shared folder:
   - Your 3 Newton's Laws Movies Reflection Sheets
   - Your 1 Friction Movie Reflection Sheet
   - Your Planning Page

- You are "Finished" when you have a TOTAL of 5 PDFs saved in the above shared folder

_____________________________________________________________

 

Day 3- Your Newton's Laws Project:

You will be making a file (using SmartNotebook, or whatever program works for you) showing how Newton's Laws of motion can be found in your chosen topic. Many people use sports because there is a lot of motion in sports, so they are an obvious choice. Feel free to branch out from sports if that is where your interests are. Anything moving relates back to Newton's laws, so the choices are endless. Though, if you are going a different direction than sports, just check it with me.

Specifics About the Project:

1. A Page for each of Newton's laws showing:
- 2 separate diagrams (for example: Newton's 1st, you need to show objects at rest and objects in motion)
- Each diagram needs to have information boxes or captions explaining what is shown
- Remember, your goal is to show someone how your choice shows the laws. It needs to be very informative. (show me you know what you are talking about)

2. A page showing Friction
- At least one type
- Champions feel free to do what Champions do


Handing in your First Page
:

1. Convert this page project into a PDF and save it into the shared folder marked "DRAFT"
Save as: Last name- Draft        Example: Kirby- Draft

2.  If you are having trouble saving your project as a PDF, then ask.  I will only be grading PDFs
