Highlights of the week_COS_physics_G9

Highlights of the week_COS_physics_G9

A discussion was done with learners to make them understand the purpose of doing the activities like tug of war, balancing the ball in half cut pipe and sprinting with the parachute. The conclusion of the discussion lead to the understanding that forces exist as balanced and unbalanced and there is motion when unbalanced forces act on objects. This was followed by explanation that force can also cause extension in the springs and the relation between two quantities is given by Hooke’s law.

Highlights of the week_COS_physics_G9

Learners were introduced to the unit with the help of an activity where Newton spring balance was used and they could differentiate between mass and weight. Next, they were made to play games like tug of war, sprinting with a parachute and balancing the ball and transferring the same in a half cut pipe. From all these activities they were introduced to balanced and unbalanced forces and moment of force.

Learners were introduced to the unit with an tuning in activity wherein they were made to play the dart game. Each learner got a chance to throw the dart and this was timed. This data was then used to calculate the speed for each learner’s dart when it hit the board.  During the unit the learners learned about speed, velocity, acceleration, formulas for each of these and the units. They also learned about scalars and vectors, plotting and interpretation of graphs including distance time graphs, speed  time graphs. Equations of motion were also catered to during the unit and for each of the concepts learned learners solved related numerical.
