#### A Little Light Work

Students will study graphs of light intensity at various distances from a light sensor. They will use power and linear regressions to determine the relationship between light intensity and distance from the light source. They will also develop their own models for the relationship.

#### A Steep Hike - Adventure 3

Students use the CBR 2™ to gather distance and time data for various walking speeds. They observe the effect of change in direction and speed of motion on distance versus time graphs. Students interpret and analyze graphs, calculate slope and relate rate of change to slope.

#### AC Circuits

Students explore a model of alternating electric current. They observe the effects of varying voltage, angular velocity, frequency, and phase shift on the shape of the waveform. They also calculate the relative phase shift between two waveforms. Finally, they create a model of a three-phase alternating current.

Students explore the total voltage provided by several batteries in a series to a battery-operated device. They graph scatter plots, understand multiplication as repeated addition, and use a pattern to develop a formula. They learn how to develop a formula from a pattern of increasing voltage and graph increase in voltage in the form of a scatter plot.
