                    The most fun part of science is in conducting experiments. As part of the curriculum, all of you will be conducting a science fair project.
                    This is where you will learn how to conduct a #1 science project.

                    When you finish the science project lesson, I want you to write your science paper here in the following sections: title page, background, variables & hypothesis, method & planning, Data Collection & Data Processing, Conclusion, Evaluation, References.

                    Upload your drawing or any other relevant files if you have one.

                    I MUST approve of the above entries before you can begin your project.

                    Follow the lessons below then take the quiz to pass these standards.

                      How do things move?
                      This past semester, we've learned about motion of matter. Specifically, we learned about Newton's Laws of Motion through
                      watching videos from youtube that are on my Wiki page.
                      Your assignment for this section was to create your multimedia presentation explaining Newton's Law via Wrestling and/ or Cheerleading.

                      I used this rubric to grade your presentation. A wiki page for Physics of Sports is created to share this lesson with others.

                      Part of this standard is to learn about the parts of a wave. After reading about waves, I wanted you to summarize what you read. Before taking the motions quiz, you also learned about electric forces and magnetic forces.
