  1. 1. Warm-up, 09.25.2009 Create a flow diagram that traces the conversion of solar energy (light from the sun) into different forms of energy on earth. Créez un organigramme qui trace la conversion de l'énergie solaire (lumière du soleil) dans différentes formes d'énergie sur terre. Cree un organigrama que remonte la conversión de la energía solar (luz del sol) en diversas formas de energía en la tierra.
  2. 2. Notes, Chapter 5 <ul><li>ENERGY CANNOT BE CREATED OR DESTROYED! ONLY TRANSFORMED! Its not going away, its just going somewhere else! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: Why doesn’t a wave go on forever? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: Why doesn’t a student slide across a classroom floor forever? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: When a football player tackles another, why don’t they fly through the air forever? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: A person on a swingset does not swing at the same height at every push. Why? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: A boulder that has been in the same place for millions of years still has energy. Why? </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Notes, Chapter 5 <ul><li>Energy transformations: energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: rubbing your hands together quickly transforms chemical energy (from the food you eat) into thermal energy (caused by friction) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: Eating food converts chemical potential energy in the food into energy that your body can use. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: When you plug in and turn on a hair dryer, you are converting electrical energy (from the outlet) into thermal (heat) energy, kinetic (the air that is being pushed) energy, and sound (the noise it is making) energy. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Notes, Chapter 10 <ul><li>Transverse waves have CRESTS and TROUGHS . Crests are the alternating high points, and troughs are the alternating low points. </li></ul><ul><li>Compressional waves have COMPRESSIONS and RAREFACTIONS . Compressions are where the wave is bunched up, rarefactions are where the wave is less dense. </li></ul><ul><li>Wavelength: the distance between 2 points of equal height on a wave. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Notes, Chapter 10 <ul><li>Wave speed equation: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Speed in meters per second = frequency (in Hz) TIMES wavelength (in meters). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>v= f λ </li></ul></ul>
  6. 8. Timeline due today (3 grades) <ul><li>At least 10 events. Less than 10 = redo. </li></ul><ul><li>At least 3 illustrations. Less than 3 = redo. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Full color illustrations = happy teacher. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Accurate chronological order. </li></ul><ul><li>If no date given, make sure the events are in proper order. </li></ul><ul><li>You may use the computers for research. </li></ul><ul><li>You may also use the textbooks for research (chapters 7, 8, 12, 17, 20) </li></ul>
  7. 9. Final Project - Science Fair (5 Grades) <ul><li>Class with highest average grade gets a disco pizza party. Wear funny clothes and dance to disco music in celebration of SCIENCE!! </li></ul><ul><li>Start thinking of ideas for demonstrations you can do in class. </li></ul><ul><li>What makes YOU passionate about science? Forensics? The ocean? Animals? Anatomy? Explosions? Psychology? Cars/Motorcycles? Aliens? Lasers? Tornados? The terrible secret of space? Explosions? Flight? Dinosaurs? Urban legends/myths? The everglades? Sound waves? Sci-fi? Magnetism? Genetic mutations? Evolution? Explosions? </li></ul>
  8. 10. Wrap-Up, 09.25.2009 <ul><li>1) Create a timeline that illustrates your life to this point. What events have shaped the way you are today? </li></ul><ul><li>2) Next, map out a timeline for yourself for the next 15 years. What events do you feel will play a big role in shaping yourself at an adult? </li></ul><ul><li>3) If somebody were to look at just the second half of your timeline (the future), how well do you think they would be able to judge the current you ? </li></ul>
