**Unit TitleUniversal Gravitation, Speed of Light, and Special**Relativity**Vision**• Student groups will create a research presentation which answers specific questions about “History of Classical Gravitational Theory” and “General Relativity. • Students will realize they can research and understand difficult topics and present it in a medium that helps others to understand.**Vision**• Students will realize scientific theory and discoveries impact scientific thought and society • The students communicate and apply scientific information…through technology based reports.**Guidelines**• Each team member must make a definite and documented contribution to the presentation. The role of each student must be clearly stated. • Each team should be prepared to give the presentation. • The presentation must include at least two references from which information is drawn. • Presentation should not exceed 10 minutes.**History of Classical Gravitational Theory Questions**• Give a brief overview of how gravity and motion of the planets was viewed historically before Newton. Include vies of Aristotle, Galileo, and Kepler.**History of Classical Gravitational Theory Questions**• Generally describe the life and time of Isaac Newton, including his personal life. Describe his major scientific contributions, including his contribution to the theory of gravity. • What was the major contribution of Henry Cavendish to the Universal Law of Gravitation?**General Relativity Questions**• What role does the equivalence of the inertial and gravitational properties of mass play in the development of general relativity? • How does gravity correspond to the bending of the space-time fabric? • What is the Schwarzschild radius?**General Relativity Questions**• What are black holes, and are they real? • How does gravity bend light? What is gravitational lensing? • What are worm holes, and are they real? • What predictions of general relativity have been verified, if any?**Essential Question**• How do history and science relate?**Unit Questions**• What is the relationship between gravity and general relativity?**CFQ’SContent Questions**• Research and describe the historical development of the concepts of gravitational forces and general relativity.**CFQ’SContent Questions**• Describe motion relative to different frames of reference. • Explain the scientific contributions of a variety of historical and contemporary scientists on scientific thought and society.**Gauging Student Needs Assessment**• I will use a survey to see what the students know or think they know.**Gauging Student Needs Assessment**• Brainstorm to see how the surveys compare and see if students know anything for prior research or knowledge or do they use just what they have heard other speculate about. • Question students to see how sure they are of their prior knowledge.**Gauging Student Needs Assessment**• After projects have been completed will brainstorm again to find out what the students think about the new information. • What did they learn new? • What surprised them about the new information? • How do they think this will affect them in the future?**How Will The Assessment Info Help?**• How to direct the student research • To confirm that they are really researching instead of relying on prior misinformation.**Feedback**• How students can do presentation other than power point • Other ways to asses • Final assessment ideas
