Monday: Due: Study for Quiz, In Class: Quick Review; Motion Graphs Quiz, Work on Final Exam Study Guide, Review Mid-Term Exam; HW: Read 37-44 and take notesTuesday: Due: Notes on pg. 37-44; In Class: Notes - Acceleration, Practice Problems, Reaction Time Ruler; HW: Bonus due Friday
Bonus (due Friday): What is the relationship between age and reaction time? Make a prediction and then use your completed Reaction-Time Ruler (made in class) to collect reaction time data on 1-2 adults (must be at least 20 years older than you, the older the better (i.e. Parents, Grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, Teachers, etc.). Create a data table to record their name, age, gender, and 5 reaction times. You are the ruler-dropper (the catcher cannot also be the dropper). The catcher must have their hand resting on a surface (so that it does not move). They may only use two fingers to catch the ruler. The dropper (you) should release the ruler when the catcher is NOT anticipating it (expected drops will contaminate the data). Do not record missed rulers (falls to the ground) or catches under 0.127 seconds (this indicates an expected drop). 2 bonus points will be awarded for each adult tested. Write a short summary paragraph (2-3 sentences) about what you learned from this experiment. Max. 5 pts. possible.
