Daily Objectives:  

1. Demonstrate a strong understanding of all concepts and objectives of the Waves & Energy Unit  the Waves and Energy Unit

2. Demonstrate how potential energy is transferred into kinetic energy and via versa.

3.  Explore: Energy Transfer- When energy is transferred from a source to a receiver, the quantity of energy before the transfer is equal to the quantity of energy after the transfer.
P.EN.M.3/ P.EN.M.4  /  P.EN.07.33/ P.EN.M.4/ P.EN.07.43
Today in Class:
1.  Students reviewed quietly – prep for the assessment.
2.  Students took the online assessment: Waves and Energy.  This took most students about 20 -25 minutes.  You should have been prepared, and hopefully you achieved a great score, demonstrating a strong understanding of the concepts and ability to apply and analyze the material.
3.  Students then completed the Conclusion for the Wave Transfer experiment.
4.  Next, we filled out another Spider Diagram – Bulls-Eye diagram – to track your progress and help you to evaluate if you had any weaknesses from   this unit – which Standards you still beed to practice and study.
Homework:  No HW tonight…  !

Daily Objectives:

1.  Energy Transfer- Energy is transferred from a source to a receiver by radiation, conduction, and convection.
2. When energy is transferred from a source to a receiver, the quantity of energy before the transfer is equal to the quantity of energy after the transfer.
3.  Relate properties of waves to one another; compare and contrast the types of waves to one another
4.  Demonstrate different types of waves; show what happens to amplitude and frequency when a greater force/energy initiates your wave.
5.  Demonstrate how waves transfer energy when they interact with matter
P.EN.07.31/ P.EN.07.32/ P.EN.07.33
Today in Class:
1.  Photosynthesis Lab: We discussed cytoplasmic streaming with the chloroplasts. You should have completed the drawing of the chloroplasts last Friday.  Many of you needed to complete the (written) questions  on the lab worksheet.  Everyone turned in their papers.   If you would like to complete more work on this lab tomorrow morning, and draw other cells or different leaf / plant, you may come in to do this .

 

2.  You chose one of three options for Energy Conversion Lab—-Ball Drop, Magnetic Energy, or Ping Pong Ball Down a PVC Pipe. Your goal today for this lab: you and a partner recall and understand concepts from this unit. apply these concepts to an experimental design, evaluate and analyze the best methods to run your trials, and then design the experiment, based on the State the Problem (which was given to you)..  You should have completed:  Hypothesis, Gather Information (concepts, definitions), Materials, Method, Data Table/Graph.
Homework:  Actively study  —- Mechanical Waves, Properties of Waves, Changes in Waves, Interference, Standing Waves, Resonance, Transfer of Heat, Type of Energy, Transfer of Energy, Photosynthesis

Daily Objectives:

1.  Demonstrate how waves transfer energy when they interact with matter
2.  Explore: Energy Transfer- When energy is transferred from a source to a receiver, the quantity of energy before the transfer is equal to the quantity of energy after the transfer.
3.  Explain how light energy is transferred to chemical through the process of photosynthesis
P.EN.07.33/ P.EN.M.4/ P.EN.07.43
Today in Class:
1.  You took the Waves and Energy Quiz #2.  Most of you seem to be understanding this material well. The quiz average was great, too.
2.  Photosynthesis Lab: you should have used your prior knowledge (think – the cell, microbiology, plants, chemistry compounds, and now Energy Transfer!)
Everyone partnered up and completed the Questions and Answers on the front of the Lab WS.
Next, you were able to observe leaf cells – Rotala indica species and see if you could identify the chloroplasts within the cells.  This was really cool!  Some of you might wish to look again Monday in the morning or at lunch.  I also have another type of aquatic plant: Hydrocotyle triparitita sp. , if you want to look at another species.
3.  You should have handed in your lab paper.  You should be close to completing  the questions on this lab.  You will be able to complete the last few questions for the bell ringer Monday at the beginning of class.
Homework:  If you found the questions challenging for the Photosynthesis Lab – review those notes.  The lab should be completed at the beginning of class Monday, so make sure you understand this important process and the energy transfers that take place.

2.  Explore: Energy Transfer- Energy is transferred from a source to a receiver by radiation, conduction, and convection. When energy is transferred from a source to a receiver, the quantity of energy before the transfer is equal to the quantity of energy after the transfer.
3.  Explain how light energy is transferred to chemical through the process of photosynthesis
P.EN.07.33/ P.EN.M.4/ P.EN.07.43
Today in Class:
A.    You discussed a the Electromagnetic Spectrum diagram – it was on the Smartboard.  Some of the things you discussed were: 1) how the wavelengths are different size, depending on the type of wave.  2)  The different types of electromagnetic waves and wave energy.  3)  When the frequency increases, the wavelength increases.   I will post this diagram on my notes for the week.
B.  Notes – Photosynthesis— you really reviewed past information that you learned about photosynthesis (Cells & Microbiology).  You were reminded about cell structures (chloroplasts, cytoplasm); the chemical process of Photosynthesis; and movement within cells – diffusion and osmosis.
Today, you also applied Energy Transfer to the process of photosynthesis.
C.  Review:  you reviewed the topics that would be on the quiz: Resonance, Standing Waves, Heat Transfer and Types of Energy.  Q & A with Mr. Fowler.

Today in Class:

  1.  Mr. Fowler reviewed energy types with you.  You should have these listed in your notes: they are the energy types that were discussed on the website (homework – Monday).  I have also written them on my Blog  (Notes for the Unit page).
  2. Next – you did learn / copy the notes – Energy Transfer, Heat Transfer…. (yes I will post these!!).
  3. Third, you and a partner watched the video clips (see below!)  to determine the types of energy shown and the energy transfer that takes place.  Most students completed these examples with time to spare (except 7th hour – due to the tornado drill).
  4. Mr. Fowler reviewed some of the energy transfers with your class.  These are your notes for energy transfer.

Today in Class:
1.  Entrance Ticket: You answered 3 questions that illustrated whether you completed your homework last night–  did you carefully read the website (noted on my Blog post 3/13)?
2.  Next, Mr. Fowler asked you to identify the different types of energy that were named on the Energy website.  Students identified the following types of energy, and you should have listed these in your notes: 1.  Electrical  2.  Mechanical / Physical  3.  Nuclear  4.  Magnetic  5.  Heat /Thermal   6.  Electromagnetic / Wave Energy  (the website  calls this “radiant” energy )   7.  Chemical    8.  Classifying Energy as Potential or Kinetic (and elastic and gravitational)
3.  Next, you searched and chose a picture as directed.  You then moved from station to station and identified and matched the correct type of energy with the picture at the station that was shown. I have these examples listed below – if you want to check these at home.
4.  Mr. Fowler reviewed the stations / answers / types of energy when the class was done with this activity.
Homework:  Actively study the wave notes (esp.: standing waves, types of energy,  and heat transfer)
