AGENDA FOR THE WEEK OF APRIL 16-20, 2018

STANDARDS: 

S8P4. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to support the claim that electromagnetic (light) waves behave differently than mechanical (sound) waves.

 

a. Ask questions to develop explanations about the similarities and differences between electromagnetic and mechanical waves.

 

b. Construct an explanation using data to illustrate the relationship between the electromagnetic spectrum and energy.

 

c. Design a device to illustrate practical applications of the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g., communication, medical, military).

 

 d. Develop and use a model to compare and contrast how light and sound waves are reflected, refracted, absorbed, diffracted or transmitted through various materials.

 

e. Analyze and interpret data to predict patterns in the relationship between density of media and wave behavior (i.e., speed).

 

f. Develop and use a model (e.g., simulations, graphs, illustrations) to predict and describe the relationships between wave properties (e.g., frequency, amplitude, and wavelength) and energy.

 

g. Develop and use models to demonstrate the effects that lenses have on light (i.e., formation an image) and their possible technological applications.

UPCOMING AGENDA FOR NEXT WEEK

Hi,

The end  of the 9 weeks is quickly drawing near.  There will be NO notebook check next week, as I’ll be grading the Motorized Car Project as well as the Electricity/Magnetism Summative.     I wanted to give you a heads up on how the end of the 9 weeks will look:

  • Monday 3/12 – Electricity/Magnetism Summative; Students should have a completed copy  of the study guide which was completed on Monday 3/5. Unit 4 PPT Study Guide 2018-ty9a59
  • Tuesday 3/13 – Remediation for those who want to retest; Students will complete Stumble Sheet (students know what this is); This is also the final day for students to get their motorized car working
