Learn these so you can communicate this concept well.

Lesson 4: Hei Mahi (Do Now)

Do Now:

Collect and complete this small 'Do Now'. Then glue into your SciPAD page 11. Use your commonsense when glueing - don't glue straight on-top of words!

Lesson 4: Exit Task

Find some space on page 15 of your PESS1.2 SciPAD,
and answer the following questions:

What does each letter in CUTLASS stand for? 

How are Distance Time Graphs converted to Speed-Time Graphs and vice versa

A ticker-timer tape can be converted into a graph by cutting the paper through each dot and gluing the resulting strips side by side. 

In the example below, there are five intervals, so cutting through 1-6 dots will give 5 strips. When the strips are placed side to side, the horixontal axis represents time intervals and the vertical axis represents velocity.
