AP Physics air resistance lab Action plan Summary by Andy Buchanan EDUC 511

Outline : 

Outline Pre-lab 1 - concepts Pre-lab 2 – design an experiment Lab activity 1 – perform experiment Lab activity 2 – apply the results Lab report - reflection

Pre-Lab #1 : 

Pre-Lab #1 Students work with partners Introduced to activity & objectives Youtube videos Video 1 Video 2 Which will fall faster this or one of these ?

Pre-Lab #1 continued : 

Pre-Lab #1 continued List 3 characteristics of “fast” falling objects and 3 characteristics of “slow” falling objects Propose a hypothesis for which objects fall faster than other Give rational for hypothesis Propose a simple experiment to support hypothesis

Pre-Lab #1 Assessment : 

Pre-Lab #1 Assessment Self and peer assessment Class discussion Testing of hypotheses Download Pre-Lab 1 Handout with rubric

Pre-Lab #2 : 

Pre-Lab #2 Terminal velocity Leading conceptual questions Design and experiment to develop a mathematical expression for the force of air resistance as a function of speed

Pre-Lab #2 Assessment : 

Pre-Lab #2 Assessment Teacher assessment Confirm that proposed experiment is appropriate and adequately planned Download Pre-Lab #2 Handout with rubric

Lab Activity 1 : 

Lab Activity 1 Perform experiment as planned during pre-lab Complete data analysis Develop equation for air resistance as a function of speed Teacher assessment Download Lab Activity 1 Handout with rubric

Lab Activity 2 : 

Lab Activity 2 Contest ! Winners get the “Lab Master” trophy Assessment based on performance against contest goals Download Lab Activity 2 Handout with rubric
