Aug.31-lab: Motion Detectors and Graphing

Several of you will be out for the Kairos retreat - I will try to allow class time next week for you to make up this lab if you cannot come in outside of school. Try to coordinate with other classmates who will be on the retreat and work together - groups of 3 or 4 would be ideal.
Wagner: Graphshttps://youtu.be/BDfArTbZfpkThe Roman numeral is different than your notes (this version is for the CP physics class, but it’s still a good introduction to graphs and motion); you will need to change the #’s on the y-axis in the example problem - your notes are different.
