Do Now: 
1. Take out your Final Exam Study Guide- Section A to be checked! 
2. Any ones you didn't know? Ask now or forever hold your peace!
3. Take out your 2nd Law Practice to be checked. 
4. Any ones you didn't know? See the answer key on table 1 to check your answers. You don't ask for help, you don't get help!

Today's Goals:               Newton's 2nd Law of Motion  
The size of a force on an object's mass will affect the amount of change it experiences. We can predict the outcome of an applied force using Newton's 2nd Law.            2nd Law Simulation Lab today!     


Homework:
Final Exam Study Guide- Section B due Friday, 6/1

"If the Earth suddenly stopped spinning, that would be very bad because____"
YES, SAME AS YESTERDAY. WRITE IT DOWN, & THE LAW/VOCAB that explains it!

Today's Goals:               Newton's 2nd Law of Motion

Do Now: 
1. Get your Coin Caper and materials, move to the lab tables, and get going!
2. On your Do Now page, write today's date and complete the following:
"If the Earth suddenly stopped spinning, that would be very bad because____"

Today's Goals:               Newton's 1st Law of Motion , Newton's 2nd Law of Motion  
Inertia is an object's resistance to change. How can that word help us understand and predict the motion of objects? The size of a force on an object's mass will affect the amount of change it experiences.  


Homework:
none! (except study guide, and if for some reason you didn't finish Coin Caper!)
