Potential and Kinetic Energy to Simple Machines

4HR is investigating into How does the transfer of energy impact the motion of an object? In watching this video, we see how objects transfer energy from potential to kinetic energy. What happens as a result?

Later this week we will revisit this video, looking for simple machines. What do you already know about simple machines?

Partial Quotient and Math games

4HR is learning how to use the Partial Quotient Method to divide large numbers. Here is a tutorial explaining the steps to using the Partial Quotient Method.

In class you will be practicing the Partial Quotient Method, as well as reviewing all operations and pattern finding. Go to this link to practice the Operations and Algebraic Thinking games.

Applying Understanding of Friction

Today we are going to make predictions as to what surface would allow a skateboarder to travel the furthest. Let's play Friction Ramp to determine how friction affects are everyday lives.

Now let's watch Magic School Bus Plays Ball to find out how friction impacts sports.
