Monday, Oct. 20

Prelab: Talk about procedure for today's lab; create blank data table in lab bookyou can start collecting data as soon as the table is completed.
Lab 2: Uniform Accelerated Motion HW: By Wednesday, have a data table (or more than 1) with your raw data and any processed data (calculations) that you need for this lab. Have everything (except a graph) that you would plan to include in a final draft of your lab report. 
Tuesday, Oct. 21

day 2 of labkeep working on data collection, begin work on analysis when you get done with data collection.

Wednesday, Oct. 22

IB lab expectations/rubric discussion
Selfassess your lab's data using the rubric Introduce LoggerProemail has been sent through Skyward so you can install this program on your home computers Class work time for lab analysis, or completion of data collection if you needed more time Helpful Video (YouTube): entering data and making max/min slopes Lab Report (Data and Analysis) is due on Tuesday of next weekthis includes the following:  raw data table  justification of uncertainties  table(s) of calculated data necessary  1 sample calculation for each different type of calculation used (i.e. average, velocity, uncertainty calculations, etc.)  1 graph showing original relationship between MV and RV  Linearized graph to show appropriate relationship, with data table and sample calculations for this new data  Statement at the end stating what the acceleration of your cart was (according to your graph's data) and how you know  quick comparison between your experimental value and the value measured by the accelerometer. Data Collection/Analysis Rubric will be available before the weekend, as will a Help/Cheat sheet on formulas you can use in Excel, and how to add max and min slopes to your graphs.see Mechanics notes section
