NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS
Crosscutting Concepts: Patterns
Graphs, charts and images can be used to identify patterns in data.
COMMON CORE LEARNING STANDARDS
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.6-8.3: Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.6-8.7: Integrate quantitative or technical information expressed in words in a text with a version of that information expressed visually (e.g., in a flowchart, diagram, model, graph or table).
NEW YORK INTERMEDIATE SCIENCE STANDARDS
Standard 4: The Physical Setting
PS. 5.1a: The motion of an object is always judged with respect to some other object or point. The idea of absolute motion or rest is misleading.
PS. 5.1b: The motion of an object can be described by its position, direction of motion, and speed.
PS 4.1a: All energy transfers are governed by the law of conservation of energy.
PS 4.1c: Potential energy is the energy an object possesses by virtue of its position or condition.
PS 4.1d: Kinetic energy is the energy an object possesses by virtue of its motion.
With only one device, you can project the iPad so that the entire class can watch and be involved in the recording and investigation/annotation of a single video.
With many devices, students may be broken up into teams to work collaboratively on their iPads to record, annotate and investigate their videos. We suggest having teams of three to four students. (Suggestions for student roles in each time can be found in the introduction.)
