7 7 Cool It Name Student Activity Class How do drinks cool? When you have a drink which is very hot, you have probably noticed that it quickly cools off to a temperature that you consider tolerable. Your drink then remains in a drinkable temperature range for quite a while until it eventually cools off too much as it approaches room temperature. When you think about how this drink cools, you are thinking about math and science. In this activity, you will explore how the temperature changes as a function of time. Because watching an entire cup of hot chocolate or coffee cool will take a long time, we will conduct our experiment by heating a temperature sensor and watching it cool. Begin by making a prediction of how the temperature will change as a function of time and sketching a graph of the prediction to the right. Begin your prediction graph at the instant the sensor is pulled from the water cup. Be sure to label your axes. Write a sentence to explain why you think the graph will look like your prediction. Objectives: Understand how objects cool by recording temperature as a function of time for a sensor as it cools. Model the cooling data with the appropriate mathematical function. Materials: Vernier EasyTemp USB temperature sensor or Vernier Go! Temp USB temperature sensor with interface (Vernier EasyLink USB sensor interface or TINspire Lab Cradle) Cup of hot water with a temperature of 45º 55ºC or a hair drier to heat the temperature sensor Texas Instruments Incorporated 1 education.ti.com
8 8 Cool It Name Student Activity Class Data Collection: 1. Open a new document on the TINspire TM handheld. Connect the temperature sensor directly or with the interface. You will use the default settings. 2. Place the temperature sensor in the cup of hot water and watch for the readings to become steady indicating that the sensor has reached the temperature of the water. 3. Remove the sensor from the cup of hot water, wipe it off so that evaporation is not a factor and let it sit on the edge of the table without touching anything to cool. Begin the data collection immediately by pressing the green arrow in the lower left corner of the screen ( ). 4. Once the data is collected, send the data file to each group member s handheld. Analysis: 1. Compare your data with your prediction. If they are different, explain why you think data does not match your prediction exactly and sketch the graph of the collected data on the same set of axes, labeling each relationship. 2. Why is the room temperature important in this activity? 3. Click on the graph to select a data point. Move the tracing cursor to find the starting temperature and then use your graph or other methods to determine the temperature of the room in ºC. The room temperature should be lower than your lowest temperature recorded. Record them below Starting Temperature (ºC) Room Temperature (ºC) Difference in Temperatures (ºC) 4. You may recognize that the data appears to be exponential. You will model this data with an equation in the form y = a b x + c. Use what you know about transformations and the data points in the table above to find values for a and c. Note that a is not the starting temperature. Explain why a is different value in the table. Record the values for a and c in the table to the right. a c 2012 Texas Instruments Incorporated 2 education.ti.com
9 9 Cool It Name Student Activity Class 5. You will guess a value for b. Does the graph show exponential growth or decay? Based upon this, what are the possible values for b? 6. Select MENU > Analyze > Model. Type in the model y = a b x + c (be sure to enter the multiplication sign between a and b) and then enter the values for a and c along with your estimate for b. The spin increment will allow you to adjust the values in the increments you choose by the value entered. To obtain a good fit, you will need to adjust the value of b possibly a or c. Adjust the values using the up and down arrows in the details box to the left of the graph. You can also click the value of b and enter a specific value of your choice. Once the model fits the data, record the equation. 7. What is the physical representation of each parameter a, b and c? 8. An exponential regression can also be used to find the equation but the exponential regression is in the form y = a b x with no vertical shift value of c from above. How could the data be transformed so that the regression model can be used on the curve? 9. Since the temperature levels off at room temperature rather than zero, the exponential curve is shifted upward by room temperature. Subtracting room temperature from all of the temperature values will allow the data to be analyzed with an exponential regression. Select Menu > Data > New Calculated Column. Name the new column Adj Temp. The Expression must be typed in precisely with Temperature Room Temperature value Texas Instruments Incorporated 3 education.ti.com
10 10 Cool It Name Student Activity Class 10. To see the graph of the Adjusted Temp as a function of time, click on the Temperature label along the dependent axis of the graph and change it to Adj Temp. Or you may select it from the Graph Menu. 11. Select Menu > Analyze > Curve Fit > Exponential. Record the value of the exponential regression. 12. Compare the exponential regression value with the value of the model you developed. Write an equation for the original data set using the exponential regression. 13. How would the graph change if the experiment were performed outside on a very cold day? 14. How would the graph change if the hot water had a higher initial temperature? 15. Write a short paragraph to summarize what you learned in this activity Texas Instruments Incorporated 4 education.ti.com
11 11 Cool It TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Math and Science Objectives Students will first predict and then examine the relationship for temperature as a function of time for an object that is cooling. Students will model mathematically the relationship with the exponential equation in the form y = a b x + c. Students will relate each of the parameters in the equation to a physical quantity. Students will draw conclusions about cooling objects and make predictions about how changes in the data collection will affect the results. Students will use appropriate tools strategically. (CCSS Mathematical Practice) Vocabulary temperature initial temperature exponential equation About the Lesson Making predictions prior to data collection is an important step in helping students to connect real world phenomena to mathematics. Students will heat a temperature probe either in hot water or with a hair drier and then watch it cool. They will find the mathematical equation for the data by creating their own model first and then by transforming the data so that they can run an exponential regression. As a result, students will: Develop a conceptual understanding of how objects cool. Make a realworld connection about exponential functions and transformations. Materials and Materials Notes TINspire handheld or TINspire computer software TINspire Technology Skills: Collect temperature data with the Vernier DataQuest app Tech and Troubleshooting Tips: 1. The temperature sensor can be heated using hot water or a hair drier. If students use the hot water, they should wipe the sensor immediately after removing it from the water so that evaporation is not a factor in the cooling. The hair drier simply requires heating the sensor and collecting data once the drier is turned off. 2. As the temperature sensor cools, check to see that fans or air conditioners are not blowing directly on the sensor.

12 12 Cool It TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Cup of hot water with a temperature of 45º 55ºC or a hair drier to heat the temperature sensor. Using EasyTemp with a computer requires the use the ministandard USB adaptor to plug the temperature sensor into a computer with TINspire Teacher or Student Software. Using the TINspire Cradle with the standard temperature sensor requires a USB cable to connect to the teacher computer. If you do not have the adapter, you may want to collect data with the student handheld and transfer to the computer using TINspire Navigator System or Teacher Software. Discussion Points and Possible Answers Teacher Tip: Making predictions is very important to helping students to connect the physical world to the mathematical world. Ask the students to make a prediction prior to collecting data and sketch it. You may then want to ask them to compare their predictions to those of other students in the class as you walk around and look at the sketches. Once the data is collected, come back to those predictions and discuss any errors. In this activity, students often show the temperature curve leveling off at a temperature of zero rather than room temperature. Data Collection To collect data with a temperature sensor, first turn on the TINspire and choose New Document. Then, plug in the EasyTemp sensor and the Vernier DataQuest app will automatically launch. The handheld shows a meter which will change as the temperature varies. You are using the default setting which collects data for 180 seconds. To begin the data collection, click the green Start Collection arrow in the lower left corner of the screen. Once collection begins, the handheld will show the graph of temperature as a function of time. A sample graph is shown to the right 2012 Texas Instruments Incorporated 2 education.ti.com
13 13 Cool It TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Analysis 1. Compare your data with your prediction. If they are different, explain why you think the data does not match your prediction exactly, and sketch the graph of the collected data on the same set of axes, labeling each relationship. Sample answer: Some graphs will match the prediction and some will not. The most common error is that students don t realize that the temperature levels off at room temperature, which is higher than zero. 2. Why is the room temperature important in this activity? Sample answer: The graph is asymptotic to the room temperature. 3. Click on the graph to select a data point. Move the tracing cursor to find the starting temperature and then use your graph or other methods to determine the temperature of the room in ºC. The room temperature should be lower than your lowest temperature recorded. Record them below. Sample answers: Starting Temperature (ºC) 51.1 Room Temperature (ºC) 23.0 Difference in Temperatures (ºC) You may recognize that the data appears to be exponential. You will model this data with an equation in the form y = a b x + c. Use what you know about transformations and the data points in the table above to find values for a and c. Note that a is not the starting temperature. Explain why a is different value in the table. Record the values for a and c in the table to the right. a 28.1 c 24.0 Sample answer: The value of a is the difference between the starting temperature and the final temperature. 5. You will guess a value for b. Does the graph show exponential growth or decay? Based upon this, what are the possible values for b? Sample answer: The graph shows an exponential decay so the value of b must be between 0 and Texas Instruments Incorporated 3 education.ti.com
14 14 Cool It TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 6. Select MENU > Analyze > Model. Type in the model y = a b x + c (be sure to enter the multiplication sign between a and b) and then enter the values for a and c along with your estimate for b. The spin increment will allow you to adjust the values in the increments you choose by the value entered. To obtain a good fit, you will need to adjust the value of b possibly a or c. Adjust the values using the up and down arrows in the details box to the left of the graph. You can also click the value of b and enter a specific value of your choice. Once the model fits the data, record the equation. Equation for Sample Data: y = 28.1 (0.992) x Tech Tip: Students often become confused when they choose Model because a default equation appears. They should just type their model over the given one. If they have errors, they can go to the Analyze menu and remove the model and then reenter it. One common error is to omit the multiplication sign between a and b. 7. What is the physical representation of each parameter a, b and c? Sample answer: The parameter a represents the difference between the starting temperature and room temperature. The parameter b represents the percentage of temperature that the probe retains each second. The parameter c represents the temperature of the room. 8. An exponential regression can also be used to find the equation but the exponential regression is in the form y = a b x with no vertical shift value of c from above. How could the data be transformed so that the regression model can be used on the curve? Sample answer: If the room temperature is subtracted from all of the temperature values, the graph will be shifted down so that it has a horizontal asymptote of zero and we can run the exponential regression Texas Instruments Incorporated 4 education.ti.com
15 15 Cool It TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 9. Since the temperature levels off at room temperature rather than zero, the exponential curve is shifted upward by room temperature. Subtracting room temperature from all of the temperature values will allow the data to be analyzed with an exponential regression. Select Menu > Data > New Calculated Column. Name the new column Adj Temp. The Expression must be typed in precisely with Temperature Room Temperature value. Tech Tip: Arrow down on the right side to access the Expression. 10. To see the graph of the Adjusted Temp as a function of time, click on the Temperature label along the dependent axis of the graph and change it to Adj Temp. Or you may select it from the Graph Menu. 11. Menu > Analyze > Curve Fit > Exponential. Record the value of the exponential regression. Sample Data Solution: a = 50.0 and b = 0.997, so y = 50(0.997) x. 12. Compare the exponential regression value with the value of the model you developed. Write an equation for the original data set using the exponential regression. Solution for Sample Data: The equation y = 50(0.997) x + 24 is obtained by adding the room temperature to the exponential regression. 13. How would the graph change if the experiment were performed outside on a very cold day? Sample answer: The final temperature would be lower so the horizontal asymptote will be lower and the graph may be a little steeper since the difference between the initial and final temperatures will be greater. The value for a would be larger Texas Instruments Incorporated 5 education.ti.com
16 16 Cool It TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 14. How would the graph change if the hot water had a higher initial temperature? Sample answer: The initial temperature and the value of a would be greater. 15.

20 20 Walk a Line Name Student Activity Class Discussions/Explorations 1. As you may have gathered from your practice trials, the CBR 2 collects data measuring how far an object is located from the sensor. By walking in front of the CBR 2, collect a set of data which appears linear and has a positive slope. Provide a detailed description of your walk. Be sure to discuss the realworld connections for the slope and yintercept of the model. 2. By walking in front of the CBR 2, collect a set of data that appears linear and has a slope that is approximately zero. Provide a detailed description of your walk, including the connection between slope and yintercept and the physical actions. 3. By walking in front of the CBR 2, collect a set of data that represents a piecewise function with two parts, both of which are linear one with a positive slope and one with a negative slope. Provide a detailed description of your walk, including the connections between slope and yintercept and the physical actions Texas Instruments Incorporated 4 education.ti.com
21 21 Walk a Line TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Math and Science Objectives Students will find the slope and yintercept of a linear equation to model position versus time data. Students will explain the relationship between a positiontime graph and the physical motion used to create it. Students will model with mathematics. (CCSS Mathematical Practice) Vocabulary linear equation position speed velocity average velocity About the Lesson In this lesson, students collect data by moving at a constant velocity in front of a CBR 2. As a result, students will: Develop a linear model for a scatter plot of position versus time data Make a realworld connection between a linear equation used to model the data and the physical motion involved in the data collection process Materials CBR 2 with USB CBR 2 to calculator cable. Using the CBR 2 with a computer requires the use the ministandard USB adaptor to plug the CBR 2 into a computer with TINspire Teacher or Student Software. This adapter will convert the CBR 2 USB cable to a standard USB connection so that it can be connected to the computer. Use the legacy CBR with the TINspire Lab Cradle. You will need the MDCBTD cord to connect a motion detector to the TI Nspire Lab Cradle. With the Lab Cradle, you can even connect multiple motion detectors to extend your exploration. TINspire Technology Skills: Collect motion data with the Vernier DataQuest app. Run a linear regression in the Vernier DataQuest app. Tech Tips: 1. Flip the motion detector open. Set the switch to normal. 2. Check that the four AA batteries in the motion detector are good. 3. Unplug and plug the CBR 2 back in. 4.

22 22 Walk a Line TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TINspire Navigator System Use Class Capture to monitor student progress and compare students mathematical models. Use Live Presenter so that a student may demonstrate various steps in the modeling process. Share data via File Transfer, if desired. Discussion Points and Possible Answers Tech Tip: The Vernier DataQuest application is userfriendly. It should launch when the CBR 2 is connected. To begin the data collection, click the green Play button ( ) in the lowerleft corner of the screen. Step 1: Connect the CBR 2 to the handheld with the USB cable. A Vernier DataQuest page will automatically open and the CBR 2 will begin measuring the position of the closest object. Step 2: Teacher Tip: When the CBR 2 is first connected, it begins clicking and recording measurements. Have the students move the CBR 2 and point it at different objects. Ask them what the motion detector is doing. It should be measuring the distance from the CBR 2 to the object directly in front of it. We call this the position of the object with respect to the CBR 2. Be aware that it reads the position of the closest object in its path, so students should have an open area between the CBR 2 and the student whose position they will measure. Work in groups of two. One person will operate the TINspire handheld and point the CBR 2 toward the other partner, the walker. The walker should be standing approximately two meters from the motion detector. The walker will walk slowly toward the motion detector at a constant velocity. Step 3: Before collecting the data, make a prediction of what the graph of position versus time should look like. Sketch your prediction on the grid to the right. Answer: Predictions will vary Texas Instruments Incorporated 2 education.ti.com
23 23 Walk a Line TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Teacher Tip: It is important for students to make a prediction before simply pressing the Play button. Making predictions and testing those predictions supports higherlevel thinking. Step 4: The calculator operator should click the green Start button in the lower left corner of the screen. The walker should walk SLOWLY toward the CBR 2 at a constant velocity to close the gap in approximately 5 seconds. Don t go too fast or you will run out of room and need to try again. You must walk at the same velocity the entire time. Teacher Tip: Students often cannot get the timing right at the beginning of this activity. You may want to suggest that the recording partner press the enter key to begin data collection after the walker starts walking. This gives students a better opportunity to collect linear data for the entire collection time period. You may also want to remind students that they must walk slowly at a constant velocity. Step 5: Graphs for position versus time and velocity versus time are created and displayed on the same screen. Repeat as necessary until you generate a graph for position versus time that is roughly linear. How does the graph compare with your prediction? Sample answer: Comparisons can include function type (linear, quadratic, etc.), y intercept, and whether the graph is increasing or decreasing. Tech Tip: If the students are not satisfied with their results, they can repeat the data collection by clicking the Play button again. This will overwrite the previous trial. Step 6: To display only the position versus time graph, press Menu > Graph Settings > Show Graph > Graph 1. Sketch the actual graph of your position versus time graph on the grid shown to the right. Sample answer: A sample graph is shown to the right. Since students are all walking toward the CBR 2, all graphs should show a negative slope. Step 7: 2012 Texas Instruments Incorporated 3 education.ti.com
24 24 Walk a Line TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Manual Analysis of Data a. How can you estimate the average velocity of the walker? Answer: Find the change in the position (final initial) and divide that change in position by the elapsed time. b. What was the position of the walker at time t = 0 seconds? At time t = 5 seconds? Sample answer: At time t = 0, the position was 2 meters. At time t = 5, the position was meters. Answers for t = 5 will vary but should be a positive value less than 5 given in meters. c. Show your work to calculate the approximate slope of your line using your positions at time t = 0 seconds and t = 5 seconds. Sample answer: = = Answers will vary, but the slope should be negative. d. What does the slope of the graph represent physically? Answer: The slope represents the velocity of the walker. Teacher Tip: Some students may answer speed. This is a great opportunity to explain the difference between speed and velocity. Speed indicates how fast the walker is moving but does not include direction. Since speed has magnitude only, it is referred to as a scalar quantity. Speed is always positive. Velocity is called a vector quantity. It includes both speed and direction. Velocity can be positive or negative for a person moving back and forth along a line. Velocity is positive when the walker moves away from the motion detector, increasing the position, and negative when the walker moves toward the motion detector, decreasing the position. e. Why is the velocity negative? Answer: The velocity is negative because the position between the walker and the CBR 2 is decreasing Texas Instruments Incorporated 4 education.ti.com
25 25 Walk a Line TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT f. Linear functions are usually written in the form f(x) = mx + b. Determine the yintercept of your line and write an equation that you think will model the data. Sample answer: The yintercept is 2; y = x + 2. Equations will vary but should have b = 2 and y = the slope from part c in Step 7. g. What does the yintercept represent? Answer: The yintercept represents the initial or starting position the distance, in meters, of the walker from the motion detector at time t = 0 seconds. Teacher Tip: Students should determine an equation by hand first to practice finding slope and to help make the connections between the physical actions and the mathematical equation. Students will better understand the meaning and physical representations of the slope and yintercept if they write their own model rather than simply run a linear regression. Step 8: Press Menu > Analyze > Model. Select m*x + b to create a linear model and click OK. Type your values calculated manually from above in the fields for m and b and click OK. TINspire Navigator Opportunity: Live Presenter See Note 1 at the end of this lesson. Step 9: The model can be adjusted by clicking the slider arrows on the left side of the screen or by changing the values of m and b manually. See the sample shown at the right. If you made adjustments, record the new values below. Sample answer: m = 0.3, b = 2; y = 0.3x Texas Instruments Incorporated 5 education.ti.com
26 26 Walk a Line TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Step 10: To analyze the data with a regression, a linear curve fit can be performed within the Vernier DataQuest application. Press Menu > Analyze > Curve Fit > Linear. This will give the equation of the linear regression model. You will have to scroll down the dialog box to see the values of m and b for the linear model. Record the values for m and b below. Sample Answer: m = ; b = Step 11: Click OK to see the graphical results of the regression. How does your linear regression compare with the equation you found in Step 9? How do the values for m and b compare? Sample answer: The linear regression is similar to the equation from Step 9 but not exactly the same. The value of m in the linear regression is slightly greater (less negative) than in Step 9. The value of b is less than in Step 9. Answers will vary. Teacher Tip: The regression equation should be similar to the students equations. In some ways a student s equation may appear to be a better fit because the regression equation may not go through the actual starting position. Discussions/Explorations 1. As you may have gathered from your practice trials, the CBR 2 collects data measuring how far an object is located from the sensor. By walking in front of the CBR 2, collect a set of data that appears linear and has a positive slope. Provide a detailed description of your walk. Be sure to discuss the realworld connections for the slope and yintercept of the model. Sample answer: The walker stands close to the CBR 2 and slowly walks away at a steady rate. The yintercept is the walker s distance from the CBR 2 at time t = 0 seconds. The slope is the walker s average velocity. 2. By walking in front of the CBR 2, collect a set of data that appears linear and has a slope that is approximately zero. Provide a detailed description of your walk, including the connection between slope and yintercept and the physical actions. Answer: The walker stands still in front of the CBR 2 and does not move for the entire experiment. The yintercept is the walker s distance from the CBR 2.

By walking in front of the CBR 2, collect a set of data that represents a piecewise function with two parts, both of which are linear one with a positive slope and one with a negative slope. Provide a detailed description of your walk, including the connections between slope and yintercept and the physical actions. Sample answer: The walker starts close to the CBR 2 and slowly walks away at a steady velocity and then changes direction and heads back toward the CBR 2 at a steady velocity. This could be reversed so that the walker started walking toward the CBR 2 and then walked away. The yintercept is the walker s distance from the CBR 2 at time t = 0 seconds. The slopes are the walker s average velocities positive when walking away from the CBR 2 and negative when walking toward it. During the change in direction, the graph will not be linear. Wrap Up Upon completion of the discussion, the teacher should ensure that students understand: That the yintercept of a graph of position versus time shows starting position That the slope of a positionversustime graph shows velocity How negative, zero, and positive slopes relate to motion in a graph of position versus time Assessment Explain why the yintercept on a positionversustime graph can never be negative.

36 36 Match Me TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 4. What is the domain? Include units. Sample answer: The domain is from 0 to 10 seconds. 5. What is the range? Include units. Sample answer: The range is from 0 to 2 meters (This answer could vary). 6. Record your observations about the graph by answering the following questions. a. What is the yintercept? Sample answer: Numerical values may vary but the answer should be in meters. b. What does the yintercept represent physically? Sample answer: The yintercept represents the starting position of the target object or person, sometimes referred to as the initial position. It indicates how near the target should be to the wall before beginning to move. c. At approximately what distance from the wall should the motion detector be located to match the initial position in the motion graph? Sample answer: Answers will vary depending on the motion graph generated, but the answer should be in meters. d. The slope is the rate of change of position with respect to time. Between what times does the graph depict the slowest motion? Sample answer: Answers will vary depending on the motion graph generated. The slope of each line segment is the velocity and provides information on how fast the target object or person is moving and in what direction. Some students may say that velocity is speed. This is a great opportunity to explain the difference between speed and velocity. Speed indicates how fast the target is moving, but it does not include direction. Since speed has magnitude only, it is referred to as a scalar quantity. Speed is always positive. Velocity is called a vector quantity and is defined as the change in position divided by the change in time. It includes both the 2012 Texas Instruments Incorporated 4 education.ti.com
37 37 Match Me TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT magnitude and direction. Velocity can be positive or negative for a person moving back and forth along a line. Velocity is positive when the target moves away from the motion detector, increasing the distance, and negative when the target moves toward the motion detector, decreasing the distance between the detector and itself. Teacher Tip: It is important for students to make a prediction before simply pressing the Start button. Making predictions and testing those predictions supports higher level thinking. 7. Press the Start Collection arrow in the lowerleft corner of the screen. Point the CBR 2 at a wall and move back and forth until your graph matches the Position Match graph as closely as possible. If you are not pleased with your first attempt, press Start Collection again to repeat. You may want to review the information that you wrote about the graph to assist you. When you are satisfied with your match, sketch the graph you created on top of the given graph. Tech Tip: If the students are not satisfied with their results, they can repeat the data collection by clicking the Start Collection arrow again. This will overwrite the previous trial. 8. Describe the parts of your graph that were difficult to match and how you made adjustments, based on your graph of your walk, to make a better match in your next attempt. Sample answer: Answers will vary. Now, look at the graph shown at the right. 9. Describe how you would need to walk in order to match that graph with your motion. Be sure to include information about the yintercept, position at various times, velocity, and direction. For what times does the graph depict the slowest motion and the fastest motion? Sample answer: The walker begins one meter from the wall and moves toward the wall at a constant velocity for about 1.7 seconds. The walker gets about 0.2 meters from the 2012 Texas Instruments Incorporated 5 education.ti.com
38 38 Match Me TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT wall and then begins walking away from the wall at about the same rate for another 1.7 seconds, arriving back at 1.0 meters from the wall. The walker then begins to slowly move toward the wall until a total time of 5 seconds has elapsed. The slopes of the first two sections appear to indicate the same speed, but the first of these velocities is negative, while the second is positive. The walker moved slowest during the time period from 3.4 to 5 seconds. 10. Describe the graph with the round dots at the right that was created when Start Collection was pressed. Contrast the graph of positionversustime that should have been created with what actually happened. Write at least two complete sentences. Example: From 2 seconds to approximately 3.5 seconds, the person moved too slowly to reach the original position one meter from the wall. Sample answer: Answers will vary but may include the following information: The walker began a little too close to the wall, so the yintercept value is smaller than it should be. The walker was moving too slowly in the second section of the graph between 1.7 and 3.4 seconds. The walker was moving at about the right velocity for the third section of the graph, but the final position was a little closer to the wall than it should have been. Teacher Tip: If time permits, you should have each student match a graph without coaching. You may want to have them save the document and send it in via TINspire Navigator system as an individual evaluation. When students can match the graphs on their own, you are more assured that they understand the meaning of the yintercept and slope as they relate to motion graphs.

41 41 Boyle s Law Name Student Activity Class Open the TINspire document Boyles_Law.tns. In this activity, you will use a Gas Pressure Sensor to measure the pressure of an air sample inside a syringe. Using graphs, you will apply your results to realworld examples. What is the mathematical relation between volume and pressure for a confined gas? To answer this question, you will perform an experiment with air in a syringe connected to a Gas Pressure Sensor. When the volume of the syringe is changed by moving the piston, the change in the pressure will be measured. It is assumed that temperature and moles of gas will be constant throughout the experiment. Pressure and volume data pairs will be collected during this experiment and then analyzed. Using the data and the graph, the type of mathematical relationship between pressure and volume of the confined gas can be determined. Historically, this relationship was first established by Robert Boyle in 1662 and has since been known as Boyle s law. Move to page 1.6. Q1.

60 60 Nailing Density (PD) TI PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT Move to page Sample answer: The density of a substance is a constant independent of mass and volume that only changes only with temperature. Density is an intensive property that is characteristic of a substance. Density can be used to identify a substance. Pages Extension Answers: (For the sample data) massn vs. voln: slope = 7.31 masst vs. volw: slope = 7.52 Mean of dens: 7.67 g ml g, yintercept = 0.30 g, xintercept = 0.03 ml ml g, yintercept = g, xintercept = 27.0 ml ml 1. The intercepts for the massn vs. voln should be zero. For the masst vs. volw graph the yintercept is (initial volume) (slope) and the xintercept is initial volume. 2. The slopes are the density of the nails < 7.52 < 7.67 g ml 4. The experimental errors for individual nails have a greater effect on the massn vs. voln graph and on the mean of dens. 5. The best result for density is from the masst vs. volw graph. TINspire Navigator Opportunity: Class Capture can be used to monitor students.

61 Air Resistance 61 DataQuest 13 When you solve physics problems involving free fall, often you are told to ignore air resistance and to assume the acceleration is constant. In the real world, because of air resistance, objects do not fall indefinitely with constant acceleration. One way to see this is by comparing the fall of a baseball and a sheet of paper when dropped from the same height. The baseball is still accelerating when it hits the floor. Air has a much greater effect on the motion of the paper than it does on the motion of the baseball. The paper does not accelerate very long before air resistance reduces the acceleration so that it moves at an almost constant velocity. When an object is falling with a constant velocity, we describe it with the term terminal velocity, or v T. The paper reaches terminal velocity very quickly, but on a short drop to the floor, the baseball does not. Air resistance is sometimes referred to as a drag force. Experiments have been done with a variety of objects falling in air. These sometimes show that the drag force is proportional to the velocity and sometimes that the drag force is proportional to the square of the velocity. In either case, the direction of the drag force is opposite to the direction of motion. Mathematically, the drag force can be described using F drag = bv or F drag = cv 2. The constants b and c are called the drag coefficients that depend on the size and shape of the object. When falling, there are two forces acting on an object: the weight, mg, and air resistance, bv or cv 2. At terminal velocity, the downward force is equal to the upward force, so mg = bv or mg = cv 2, depending on whether the drag force follows the first or second relationship. In either case, since g and b or c are constants, the terminal velocity is affected by the mass of the object. Taking out the constants, this yields either 2 v T m or v T m If we plot mass versus v T or v 2 T, we can determine which relationship is more appropriate. In this experiment, you will measure terminal velocity as a function of mass for falling coffee filters, and use the data to choose between the two models for the drag force. Coffee filters were chosen because they are light enough to reach terminal velocity in a short distance. OBJECTIVES Observe the effect of air resistance on falling coffee filters. Determine how air resistance and mass affect the terminal velocity of a falling object. Choose between two competing force models for the air resistance on falling coffee filters. MATERIALS TINspire handheld or computer and TINspire software CBR 2 or Go! Motion or Motion Detector and datacollection interface 5 basketstyle coffee filters Physics with Vernier Vernier Software & Technology 131
62 62 DataQuest 13 PRELIMINARY QUESTIONS 1. Hold a single coffee filter in your hand. Release it and watch it fall to the ground. Next, nest two filters and release them. Did two filters fall faster, slower, or at the same rate as one filter? What kind of mathematical relationship do you predict will exist between the velocity of fall and the number of filters? 2. If there were no air resistance, how would the rate of fall of a coffee filter compare to the rate of fall of a baseball? 3. Sketch your prediction of a graph of the velocity vs. time for one falling coffee filter. 4. When the filter reaches terminal velocity, what is the net force acting upon it? PROCEDURE 1. Position the Motion Detector on the floor, pointing up, as shown in Figure Connect the Motion Detector to the datacollection interface. Connect the interface to the TINspire handheld or computer. (If you are using a CBR 2 or Go! Motion, you do not need a datacollection interface.) 3. Set up the DataQuest Application for data collection. a. Choose New Experiment from the Experiment menu. b. For this experiment, the default collection rate of 20 samples per second for 5 seconds will be used. c. Click on the Graph View tab ( ) to display the graph. d. Select Show Graph Graph 1 from the Graph Menu to show only the Position vs. Time graph. Figure 1 4. Hold a coffee filter about 1 m above the Motion Detector. Start data collection ( ). After a moment, release the coffee filter so that it falls toward the motion detector on the floor. 5. Examine your position graph. At the start of the graph, there should be a region of decreasing slope (increasing velocity in the downward direction), and then the plot should become linear. If the motion of the filter was too erratic to get a smooth graph, you will need to repeat the measurement. With practice, the filter will fall almost straight down with little sideways motion. If necessary, collect the data again by simply starting data collection ( ) when you are ready to release the filter. Continue to repeat this process until you get a smooth graph. 6. The linear portion of the position vs. time graph is where the filter was falling with a constant or terminal velocity (v T ). This velocity can be determined from the slope of the linear portion of the position vs. time graph. a. Select the data in the linear region of the graph. For the handheld move the cursor to the start of the linear region. Press and hold the center click button (x) until the cursor changes to. Move the cursor to the end of the linear region by sliding your finger across the touchpad in the direction you want the 132 Physics with Vernier
63 Air Resistance cursor to move. (For clickpad handhelds, use the left or right arrow keys to move the cursor.) Press d to complete the selection. For the computer software click and drag the cursor across the desired region. b. Choose Curve Fit Linear from the Analyze menu. c. Record the magnitude of the slope, m, as the terminal velocity in the data table. Select OK. 7. Repeat Steps 4 6 for two, three, four, and five coffee filters. Click the Store Latest Data Set button ( ) before each collection with an additional filter. 8. If desired, extend to six, seven and eight filters, but be sure to use a sufficient fall distance so that you have a large enough linear section of data. 63 DATA TABLE Number of filters Terminal Velocity v T (m/s) (Terminal Velocity) 2 v T 2 (m 2 /s 2 ) ANALYSIS 1. To help choose between the two models for the drag force, plot terminal velocity, v T, and the 2 square of terminal velocity, v T, vs. number of filters (mass). a.

64 64 DataQuest 13 l. Enter (Terminal V)^2 as the expression. Note: The term Terminal V must exactly match the name of the column. If you are unsure how it was entered, the available column names can be found below the Expressions entry box. m. Select OK. Enter the column values in the Data Table. n. Click on the Graph View tab ( ) to view the graph. o. Choose Select Yaxis Columns from the Graph menu. Select the More option and select both the Terminal V and the Terminal V 2 columns to graph. Select OK. p. Choose Window Settings from the Graph menu. Change the X Min and Y Min values to 0. This will scale the graph to show the origin (0,0). q. Do a proportional curve fit on the Terminal V data. Choose Curve Fit from the Analyze menu, select the Terminal V data, and choose Proportional. Select OK. r. Do a proportional curve fit on the Terminal V 2 data. Choose Curve Fit from the Analyze menu, select the Terminal V 2 data, and choose Proportional. Select OK. 2. During terminal velocity the drag force is equal to the weight (mg) of the filter. If the drag force is proportional to velocity, then v T m. Or, if the drag force is proportional to the 2 square of velocity, then v T m. From your graphs, which proportionality is consistent with your data; that is, which graph is closer to a straight line that goes through the origin? 3. From the choice of proportionalities in the previous step, which of the drag force relationships ( bv or cv 2 ) appears to model the real data better? Notice that you are choosing between two different descriptions of air resistance one or both may not correspond to what you observed. 4. How does the time of fall relate to the weight (mg) of the coffee filters (drag force)? If one filter falls in time, t, how long would it take four filters to fall, assuming the filters are always moving at terminal velocity? EXTENSIONS 1. Make a small parachute and use the Motion Detector to analyze the air resistance and terminal velocity as the weight suspended from the chute increases. For this extension, you may wish to hold the motion detector above the parachute when collecting data. 2. Draw a free body diagram of a falling coffee filter. There are only two forces acting on the filter. Once the terminal velocity v T has been reached, the acceleration is zero, so the net force, ΣF = ma = 0, must also be zero F = mg + bvt = 0 or F = mg + cvt 2 = 0 depending on which drag force model you use. Given this, sketch plots for the terminal velocity (y axis) as a function of filter weight for each model (x axis). (Hint: Solve for v T first.) 134 Physics with Vernier

The primary objective of this experiment is to determine the concentration of an unknown nickel (II) sulfate solution. You will be using the colorimeter shown in Figure 1. In this device, red light from the LED light source will pass through the solution and strike a photocell. The NiSO 4 solution used in this experiment has a deep green color. A higher concentration of the colored solution absorbs more (and transmits less) light than a solution of lower concentration. The colorimeter monitors the light received by the photocell as either an absorbance or a percent transmittance value. Figure 1. Figure 2. You are to prepare five nickel sulfate solutions of known concentration (standard solutions). Each is transferred to a small, rectangular cuvette that is placed into the colorimeter. The amount of light that penetrates the solution and strikes the photocell is used to compute the absorbance of each solution. When a graph of absorbance versus concentration is plotted for the standard solutions, a direct relationship should result, as shown in Figure 2. The direct relationship between absorbance and concentration for a solution is known as Beer s law. The concentration of an unknown NiSO 4 solution is then determined by measuring its absorbance with the colorimeter. By locating the absorbance of the unknown on the vertical axis of the graph, the corresponding concentration can be found on the horizontal axis (follow the arrows in Figure 2). The concentration of the unknown can also be found using the slope of the Beer s law curve Texas Instruments Incorporated 1 education.ti.com

93 DataQuest That s the Way the Ball Bounces: Height and Time for a Bouncing Ball Picture a bouncing ball. Between impacts with the floor, the ball rises and slows, then descends and speeds up. For any particular bounce, if the ball s height is plotted as a function of time, the resulting graph has a parabolic shape. In other words, the relationship between height and time for a single bounce of a ball is quadratic. This relationship is expressed mathematically as y = ax 2 + bx + c where y represents the ball s height at any given time x. Another form of a quadratic equation is y = a(x h) 2 + k where h is the xcoordinate of the vertex, k is the ycoordinate of the vertex, and a is a parameter. This way of writing a quadratic is called the vertex form. In this activity, you will record the motion of a bouncing ball using a Motion Detector. You will then analyze the collected data and model the variations in the ball s height as a function of time during one bounce using both the general and vertex forms of the quadratic equation. OBJECTIVES Record height versus time data for a bouncing ball. Model a single bounce using both the general and vertex forms of the parabola.

If your Motion Detector has a switch, set it to Normal. Connect the Motion Detector to the datacollection interface. Connect the interface to the TINspire handheld or computer. (If you are using a CBR 2 or Go! Motion, you do not need a datacollection interface.) 2. Position the Motion Detector about 1.5 m above the floor, so that the disc is pointing straight downward. 3. Choose New Experiment from the Experiment menu. For this experiment, the default datacollection parameters for a Motion Detector will be used (Rate: 20 samples per second; Duration: 5 seconds). The number of points collected should be DataQuest needs to be set up so positions above the floor will be read as positive Position. That is, the Motion Detector will read distance above the floor. Choose Set Up Sensors Zero from the Experiment menu. Then choose Set Up Sensors Reverse from the Experiment menu. 5. Click the Graph View tab ( ). Choose Show Graph Graph 1 from the Graph menu. Only the Position vs. Time Graph will be displayed. 6. Practice dropping the ball so that it bounces straight up and down beneath the Motion Detector. Minimize the ball s sideways travel. Dropping the ball from about waist high works well. The ball must never get closer than 15 cm from the detector. Be sure to pull your hands away from the ball after you drop it so the Motion Detector does not detect your hands. 7. Start data collection ( ). 8. When data collection is complete, a graph of position versus time will be displayed. Examine the graph; it should contain a series of parabolic regions.

Select the data corresponding to the ball s position between two bounces. a. Select just one parabolic portion of the data. b. Choose Strike Data Outside Selected Region from the Data menu. DataQuest will remove data outside the region you just marked. A new graph showing only the parabolic portion of the data will be displayed. Choose Autoscale Now from the Graph menu. 2. Click any data point and use and to trace across the graph to determine the x and y coordinates of the vertex of the parabola (in this case, the maximum point on the curve). Record them in the first data table. Answer Analysis Question Now fit the vertex form of a quadratic model y = a(x h) 2 + k to your data. Since you have values for the parameters h and k of your model, you can try plotting the model using a guess for the a parameter. First, enter your model equation for graphing. a. Insert a Graphs page. b. Insert the Sensor Console in order to input the graph from DataQuest. Verify that your data appears and then close the Sensor Console. c. Choose Zoom Data from the Window/Zoom menu to view all of your data. d. Choose Function from the Graph Type menu. e. Enter your model equation into the Entry Line replacing h and k with the values you determined earlier. Enter 1 as the initial value for the parameter a. f1(x) = a*(xh)^2+k f. Experiment with the movable parabola to find the best value for a, h and k by grasping the parabola to translate and dragging the arms to change its curvature and direction. When you have found the best value for the parameter a, use your optimized value for a and the values of h and k you determined earlier to complete the vertex form of the equation. Record the equation as your answer to Analysis Question 2. RealWorld Math with Vernier 103
96 96 DataQuest It is also possible to express any quadratic function in the standard form of y = ax 2 + bx + c, where the coefficient a is the same as the coefficient you just found for the vertex form, and b and c are other parameters related to the h and k you already know. To determine the coefficients b and c, expand the vertex form of your equation and collect like terms. Record the corresponding values of a, b, and c in the middle column of the second data table, rounded to the nearest tenth. 5. Another way to determine the parameters is to use DataQuest to perform a quadratic regression on your data to determine the bestfitting parabola to your data. a. Return to your DataQuest page. b. Choose Curve Fit Quadratic from the Analyze menu. c. Record the a, b and c parameters, in the third column of the second data table. d. Select OK. Then, answer Analysis Questions 3 5. ANALYSIS QUESTIONS 1. In this activity, the ball bounced straight up and down beneath the detector, yet the plot you see might seem to depict a ball that is moving sideways as it bounces up and down. Explain why the graph looks the way it does. 2. Record the vertex form of the parabola from Analysis Step Are the values of a, b, and c in the quadratic regression equation consistent with the values you determined in Analysis Step 4? 4. Describe how the parameter a affects the graph of y = a(x h) 2 + k. Specifically, how does the magnitude of a and the sign of a change the graph? 5. Suppose you had chosen the parabolic section for the bounce just to the right of the one you actually used in this activity. Describe how the parameters h and k would change, if at all, if this different parabolic section were to be fit with the equation y = a(x h) 2 + k. EXTENSION How does the value of a vary from one bounce to the next? Collect another run of data, and determine a new value of the parameter a using any method you like. Explain why the values of a are in close agreement for both bounces. What does a measure? CALCULUS EXTENSION Take the second derivative of the modeling equation. What is the physical significance of this value? 104 RealWorld Math with Vernier
97 Activity 10 TEACHER INFORMATION That s the Way the Ball Bounces: Height and Time for a Bouncing Ball The student pages with complete instructions for data collection using DataQuest (TINspire Technology), EasyData (TI83/84 Plus calculators), DataMate (other TI calculators), or Logger Pro software can be found on the CD that accompanies this book. See Appendix A for more information. 2. The four different Motion Detectors that can be used when collecting data are: Vernier Motion Detector, CBR, CBR 2, or Go! Motion. 3. A basketball works well for this activity. Avoid using a soft or feltcovered ball such as a tennis ball as the surface prevents good detection by the Motion Detector. 4. The Motion Detector cord must not get between the ball and the detector during data collection. 5. The activity is best done by a group of three students: one to hold the detector, another to release the ball, and a third to operate the calculator. 6. Hold the ball from the sides, and release it by quickly moving hands outward and out of the detection cone of the Motion Detector.

98 98 Activity 10 DATA TABLE Vertex xcoordinate ycoordinate Parameters Values calculated from vertex form Values from regression a b c ANSWERS TO ANALYSIS QUESTIONS 1. The graph we are using is vertical distance vs. time, not vertical distance vs. horizontal distance. That is, the horizontal axis is not horizontal distance, so the appearance of the graph has nothing to do with a sideways moving ball. 2. Vertex model equation: y = 4.59 (x 0.73) The parameters of the standard form quadratic as determined by calculator regression and by the vertex fit are similar. 4. The magnitude of a determines how sharply curved the parabola is, while the sign of a determines whether the parabola is open upward (positive a) or downward (negative a). 5. Since the vertex of the new parabola would be to the right of the one originally used, the time value h would be larger. The ycoordinate of the vertex would be smaller than before, as the ball doesn t bounce as high each time T RealWorld Math with Vernier

109 Watch the Birdie Breathe! Name Student Activity Class 109 Open the TINspire document Watch_the_Birdie_Breathe.tns In this activity, you will analyze data in a spreadsheet and graph to explore the relationship between the outside temperature and the amount of oxygen a bird uses. Birds and mammals are very unique critters! They are like reptiles, amphibians, and fish in a lot of ways. But they have one characteristic that sets them apart from all other animals they are warmblooded. The technical word for warmblooded is endothermic, which means inside (endo) heat (therm). Press / and / to navigate through the lesson. YOU are an endotherm! You regulate your body heat inside yourself, and you work very hard to keep your body heat at a constant temperature. On the other hand, ectotherms, or coldblooded animals, largely depend on the heat in their environment to keep their bodies warm. Fish, amphibians, and reptiles are ectotherms. Being an endotherm has its advantages, but there is a price to pay. As you look at the data in this activity and answer the questions, think about what this price is and how endotherms deal with it. Move to page Review the data in the spreadsheet. The temperatures represent the environmental temperatures in degrees Celsius and the oxygen used data is in ml/g of body weight/hour for a small bird, such as a sparrow.

112 112 Watch The Birdie Breathe! SCIENCE NSPIRED Discussion Points and Possible Answers Temperature affects the metabolism of animals in different ways. Endothermic (warmblooded) animals maintain a fairly constant body temperature, which gives them the advantage of being able to live in virtually any environment on Earth. Ectothermic (coldblooded) animals have a body temperature that is, in large part, regulated by their external environment. Because of this, they are most abundant in warm environments and have a difficult time surviving in cold environments. Birds and mammals, the only classes of endotherms, must eat more food in colder environments. This is because they lose so much heat to the environment. Ectotherms show the opposite behavior; eating more when it s warmer because of the increase in their metabolisms. The food energy that an organism consumes is burned during aerobic cellular respiration, which requires oxygen. Therefore, the higher the bird s metabolism, the higher the rate of cellular respiration and therefore oxygen consumption. Students will explore this through data in this activity. After analyzing data in the spreadsheet, they will model the graph data with a regression model. Move to pages Review the data in the spreadsheet. The temperatures represent the environmental temperatures in degrees Celsius and the oxygen used data is in ml/g of body weight/hour for a small bird, such as a sparrow. Tech Tip: To analyze which variable should be the independent variable, students may wish modify the graph. The variable for an axis can be changed by clicking on a variable name at the bottom of the screen or left side of the screen or by pressing Menu > Plot Properties > Remove X Variable (or Remove Y Variable).

114 114 Watch The Birdie Breathe! SCIENCE NSPIRED Q9. When would a bird need to eat more, in the summer or in the winter? Explain. Answer: Winter, because they burn up their food faster in the winter in order to maintain their body temperature. Q10. What are a bird s choices for finding and consuming food when the weather gets really cold? Answer: Eat more or find somewhere warmer to live (migrate). Q11. Why does a bird s oxygen consumption decrease as the temperature increases? Answer: There is not as great a difference between body temperature and environmental temperature (not as steep of a temperature gradient), so heat is not lost as quickly. Q12. What label should be attached to the rate of change (slope) in this problem? Describe what the rate of change means in the context of this problem. Answer: ml O2/g/hour/degree C. For each degree increase or decrease, the oxygen consumption increases or decreases by a certain value Q13. If the data in the original data table is from observations of a small bird like a sparrow or a robin, predict how the data would differ for a much larger bird, such as a bald eagle. Answer: The oxygen consumption per gram would not have been as high because of the volume of the larger bird Q14. Predict which birds, small birds or large birds, would need to eat more food per gram of body mass. Explain. Answer: Small birds because they lose heat to the environment more quickly because of their high SA/V ratio Q15. How do you predict the data and graph would be different if you were analyzing oxygen consumption for an ectothermic (coldblooded) animal, such as a lizard or a turtle? Answer: It would have been just the opposite: as temperature increased, the oxygen consumption would have increased 2011 Texas Instruments Incorporated 4 education.ti.com

117 Cell Respiration 117 DataQuest 14 Cell respiration refers to the process of converting the chemical energy of organic molecules into a form immediately usable by organisms. Glucose may be oxidized completely if sufficient oxygen is available and is summarized by the following reaction: C 6 H 12 O O 2 (g) 6 H 2 O + 6 CO 2 (g) + energy All organisms, including plants and animals, oxidize glucose for energy. Often, this energy is used to convert ADP and phosphate into ATP. It is known that pea seeds undergo cell respiration during germination. Do pea seeds undergo cell respiration before germination? Using your collected data, you will be able to answer this question concerning respiration and nongerminated peas.

127 Evaporation and Intermolecular Attractions 127 DataQuest 20 In this experiment, Temperature Probes are placed in various liquids. Evaporation occurs when the probe is removed from the liquid s container. This evaporation is an endothermic process that results in a temperature decrease. The magnitude of a temperature decrease is, like viscosity and boiling temperature, related to the strength of intermolecular forces of attraction. In this experiment, you will study temperature changes caused by the evaporation of several liquids and relate the temperature changes to the strength of intermolecular forces of attraction. You will use the results to predict, and then measure, the temperature change for several other liquids. You will encounter two types of organic compounds in this experiment alkanes and alcohols. The two alkanes are pentane, C 5 H 12, and hexane, C 6 H 14. In addition to carbon and hydrogen atoms, alcohols also contain the OH functional group. Methanol, CH 3 OH, and ethanol, C 2 H 5 OH, are two of the alcohols that we will use in this experiment. You will examine the molecular structure of alkanes and alcohols for the presence and relative strength of two intermolecular forces hydrogen bonding and dispersion forces.

157 157 Building and Interpreting Graphs Name SCIENCE NSPIRED: SKILLS OF SCIENCE Class Open the TINspire document Building_and_Interpreting_Graphs.tns See if you can complete this common phrase: A picture is worth. If you answered a dollar or not much then you probably haven t heard that phrase before! How about this: A picture is worth a thousand words! This is so true in science, isn t it? Looking at a picture of something can really enhance your understand and appreciation for it. Well, science concepts are often presented in number pictures that we call graphs. While a wellconstructed graph can do wonders for your understanding, a poor one can make science concepts more confusing. There are a few very important things to remember when making graphs. This activity will give you a chance to practice some of these things. Problem 1: Introduction to Graphing Move to pages 1.2 and 1.3. Most graphs that you will see and work with in science show data points that include an independent variable (x) and a dependent variable (y). The independent variable appears on the horizontal axis, and the dependent variable appears on the vertical axis. The starting point and interval of the scale are also very important. 1. Read the procedure on page 1.2. Then look at the graph on page 1.3 and answer the questions below. Press / and / to navigate through the lesson. Answer the following questions here. Q1. What is the independent variable in the graph shown? Q2. What is the dependent variable? 2010 Texas Instruments Incorporated 1 education.ti.com
158 158 Building and Interpreting Graphs Name SCIENCE NSPIRED: SKILLS OF SCIENCE Class Q3. What do you think the units of measure are for time for this graph? Q4. What temperature scale do you think is being used for the graph? What range of temperatures is shown on the yaxis? Q5. If this graph represents data collected during an experiment, how long did the experiment run? Q6. What was the minimum temperature recorded? Q7. What was the maximum temperature recorded? Move to pages 1.4 and 1.5. Analyzing a Trend in a Graph Often, it is helpful to include a bestfit line, also known as a regression line, with your graphed data set. A regression line helps you make predictions from a data set. The equation shown for the line follows the slopeintercept form, or y = mx + b. In this equation, m is the slope, or the rate of change, and b is the yintercept, or the point at which the independent variable would be equal to zero. The rate of change, when written, should always include the units graphed. For this graph, the unit label would be degrees C/second. Finally, make sure you pay attention to whether the rate of change is positive or negative. A positive rate indicates a steady increase, while a negative rate indicates a steady decrease. 2. Read the introduction on page 1.4. Use the graph on page 1.5 to answer the questions. Answer the following questions here. Q8. What is the rate of change (slope) for this data set? (Make sure you include the units!) 2010 Texas Instruments Incorporated 2 education.ti.com
159 159 Building and Interpreting Graphs Name SCIENCE NSPIRED: SKILLS OF SCIENCE Class Q9. What is the yintercept for this graph? (This is the temperature when time = 0 seconds. Make sure you include the units!) Q10. Estimate what the temperature was at 7.5 seconds. Q11. Estimate when the temperature was 25 C. Q12. If the experiment is continued beyond the data shown, predict the time at which the temperature will be 50 C. Q13. Predict the temperature at 12 seconds. Q14. Predict how the graph would look if the experiment were run for 20 seconds, and draw this graph to the right. Make sure you label the variables and include appropriate intervals for the scale. Problem 2: You Try It! Move to pages 2.1 and 2.2. Read the introduction on page 2.1 and move to page 2.2. You will see a spreadsheet like the one shown to the right. The columns have already been named for you as time_sec and temp_f. 3. Starting in cell A1 and moving down column A, enter the following values: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, Move to cell B1 and enter the following values down column B: 100, 95, 90, 85, 80, 75, 70, 65, 60, 55. Make sure you have the same number of values in each column Texas Instruments Incorporated 3 education.ti.com
160 160 Building and Interpreting Graphs Name SCIENCE NSPIRED: SKILLS OF SCIENCE Class 5. Move to page 2.3 where you will need to select the variables that you would like to graph. Move your cursor to the horizontal axis first and select time for your independent variable. Then move your cursor and select temp for your dependent variable. Answer the following questions here. Q15. Sketch your graph in the space to the right. Q16. Describe the trend that you see in the data set. Move to page 1.3. Follow these steps to generate a linear regression model for the data: 6. Press menu>analyze>regression>show Linear (mx+b). A regression line and corresponding equation should appear on the screen. 7. If you accidentally click and the equation disappears, you can fix it easily! Simply move your cursor to the regression line and click on it. All is well! 8. Answer the following questions after you have a graph and a regression line. Analysis Questions Q17. What is the rate of change of your graph? Q18. What is the temperature when time = 0 sec? Q19. What was the change in temperature between each value in the spreadsheet? This is also known as Δtemp ( delta temperature) Texas Instruments Incorporated 4 education.ti.com
161 161 Building and Interpreting Graphs Name SCIENCE NSPIRED: SKILLS OF SCIENCE Class Q20. What was the change in time between each value in the spreadsheet? This is also known as Δtime ( delta time). Q21. Divide Δtemp by Δtime. What is your answer? What is another name for this value, as it relates to your data? Problem 3: Graphing and Analyzing NonLinear Data Move to pages 3.1 and 3.2. The introduction on page 3.1 states that in science, most data are not linear forever. Eventually, the variables reach certain limits. If these limits did not exist, then variables could, theoretically, be negative values. Look at the graph to the right. If no limits existed, then both volume and pressure could reach negative values, which is not very realistic! Answer the following question here. Q22. Describe the trend you see in the graph on page 3.2. Move to page 3.3. Page 3.3 shows the same graph with a Power Regression model applied to the data. When the regression line is included, you can see a definite nonlinear appearance to the data set. Compare the steepness of the line between volumes 5 and 6 with the steepness between 9 and 10.

Analyzing a Trend in a Graph The second part of Problem 1 shows the same graph as in the first part, only with a regression (bestfit) line added. The regression equation is shown on the graph for the students to see and evaluate. If a student clicks somewhere in the graph space, the equation may disappear. However, if the student simply clicks on the regression line, the equation will reappear. The intent of this screen is to show that the data models a linear relationship. Another focus is to analyze the rate of change. (In this case the rate of change is 2 deg/sec) and the yintercept (which is 18 degrees C). The yintercept is the point at which the regression line crosses the yaxis and the independent variable is be equal to zero. The algebraic equation for this regression equation is y = mx + b, where m is the rate of change and b is the yintercept. Students need to understand that the term slope, which they learned in Algebra, is better described as rate of change in science. 2. Students should read the introduction on page 1.4. They should use the graph on page 1.5 to answer the questions below. Have students answer the questions on the activity sheet. Q8. What is the rate of change (slope) for this data set?

Then they look at the data graphed on page 3.2, which models Boyle s law. This graph shows the relationship between gas volume and gas pressure in an enclosed space. As in Problem 1, the data table is not available to the students the graph alone is visible for the purpose of analysis. Have students answer the question on the activity sheet. Q22. Describe the trend you see in the graph on Page 3.2. Answer: As volume increases, the pressure decreases, but not in a linear manner. Move to page 3.3. At first the data may look roughly linear. Ask students to think about what happens to gas in a closed container when you exert more and more pressure. There are limits to how low the volume can get when you have a gas in a container of fixed volume. If appropriate, this is a good time to talk about horizontal and vertical asymptotes. The regression model that best fits Boyle s law data is the power regression, which is an exponential model. (If the Kelvin temperature scale is used, then there is an inverse relationship.) The big idea for students to understand is that most scientific data are not linear. There are limits to the extremes in the data. Have students answer the questions on the activity sheet. Q23. Describe the differences you see between this graph and the graphs you looked at in Problem 2. Answer: The graph in Problem 3 is not linear.

179 179 Graphical Analysis Name Student Activity Class Open the TINspire document Graphical_Analysis.tns. Have you ever wondered why graphs differ from each other? What does it mean if a graph is linear? Why are other graphs curved upward or downward? We ll explore this through a simulation in this activity. Move to pages Press / and / to navigate through the lesson. 1. Read the introduction on pages In many laboratory investigations, finding a mathematical relationship between two variables can help explain a situation. An example may be the relationship between the volume of a gas and the pressure it exerts, or the volume and the temperature. One method for determining mathematical relationships is to make a graph of the data. A mathematical model (in the form of an equation) is then found to match the graph. A graph and its corresponding equation can also be used to make predictions about data. In this lesson, you will investigate linear, quadratic, and inverse functions. You will analyze the data to decide whether it is linear or curved. If data is curved, you will linearize it, and the method you use to linearize will help to determine which model best fits. If the data appear curved, the relationship may be quadratic or inverse. It may also have another nonlinear relationship. To determine if it is quadratic, calculate the square of the x value and graph the y value vs. x 2. (This will linearize the data). If the data points then form a line, the model for the original data is quadratic. This means that the equation for the original x and y would be y = k x 2. If the data is inverse, it will be curved. To determine if the data is an inverse relationship, calculate the reciprocal of x (1/x). Graph the y value vs. the (1/x). If this relationship is linear, the original data is inversely related. This means that the equation for the original x and y would be y = k x 1. Move to pages Answer the following questions here or in the.tns file. Q1. The expression x 1 is equal to.
