Week 5

Week 5 - Class News: 9/29 - 10/3


We will continue with the bottle rocket project this week.  As a group, you should be completed with Phase 1 of the project.  This means that you should have a high launching stable rocket that flies for about 6-8 seconds.  This week begins Phase 2 of the project, in which you will create a backslider.  Phase 2 is only your first attempt at a backslider.  Whether your rocket works as a backslider or not, you will move onto Phase 3.  This should begin on Wednesday or Thursday.   Phase 3 is about improving your backslider one independent variable at a time.  Remember, it is important for you and your partner to ONLY change 1 independent variable at a time so you can clearly identify what affects the flight time of your backslider.

Unit 1 Quiz 3 - Friday 10/16 - Remember to use your study guide to study for the quiz.
