We will watch Bill Nye Motion. In your notebook, record three applications of each of Newton's three laws of motion from the video.
In your journal label a page Newton's Catapult and determine the average mass of a Kraft stick, glue stick, three small one large rubber bands, one large, one projectile and the green and white cap options, record your data in your journal. With your partner, research possible designs, then make a sketch of your prototype catapult. You will work in groups of two at your table.
Your mission (Write this down in your journal): Construct the lightest possible catapult made from just the given materials to hit a 30 x 30 x 30 cm target with greater than 50% accuracy from a position on your lab desk. Your unsecured catapult MUST have a total mass less than 80 grams, including the projectile. Your cap, and rubber bands may NOT be glued to your catapult directly. (Tape interface works)

Wrap up
Newton's Dark Secrets
We will watch "Newton's dark secrets" and wrap it up Monday before we begin to build our catapults.
Things to answer BEFORE Monday;
What is the mass of my projected design?
How will I control velocity and angle?
How far are you from the target? (How far do you need to shoot?)
How far can my design shoot?
Please note-
Any designs with extra material, over mass or designs without a lack of controlling the amount or duration of force, will be rejected before building beings.

Log on to your computer, while you are waiting silently read your “Newton Ramp Lab Test” handout from lab desk one. The back of it is where you will write your final copy of your experiment.
Then open the following link- Asteroids (Paste address into IE) you have 10 minutes. (As you play the sim, ask yourself- (How does this sim use Newton’s three laws of Motion?)
In both Momentum and Collisions and Motion Man go to the last question and open the last period. Use the provided answer keys to correct both your labs. Tomorrow we will glue both in your notebook. Then watch Khan 2-D and Motion in 2D When done remove your headphones and wind them up and place back on the hook on the monitor.

Then open Newton Ramp Lab test 100 points, you will have the rest of the hour and tomorrow to create the lab, run it, and gather data.

Reaction Rocket Test Pre-read
Rocket Reaction Rubric-100 pts
(Work in teams of two)
Create a title and claim for your exam.
While one person holds the launcher, the other person makes sure the bottom of the ball is at the desired height.
(I recommend starting with a drop point of 10 cm for your first test.)
Smooth your data by dropping lowest/highest outlier data for each tested height.
(In statistics, an outlier is an observation point that is distant from other data observations. An outlier may be due to variability in the measurement, or it may indicate experimental error; the latter are sometimes excluded from the data set.)
Your experiment must have both a data table and line graph of the average results.
Stop increasing drop heights when rocket hits ceiling.
Your results should confirm or refute your claim using data.

Car Crash Test Design
Identify the Problem

The problem is that we need to find a way to keep an egg safe when a weight is dropped on it using crumple zone technology and paper.

Generate Ideas
-Fold paper into a spring shape to absorb impact. There would be many layers of these.
-Fold paper into a box shape and make lots of them and make a cube out of them.
-Roll paper into a tight roll and then stack them into shape of a cube.

Constraints
-Must be a 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm cube
-Use recycled paper as the building material

Criteria
-Weight less then 200 g
-Amount it crumples
-Durability
-Egg Safety

Research
-Crumple zones are areas of a car that are meant to crush when hit and absorb the impact during a crash.
-Most crumple zones incorporate a honeycomb design.
-Crumple zones work best when they are spread over an area.
-Crumple zones distribute the force away from the passengers in the car.
