Today we had a lively discussion about friction. Friction is one of the natural forces involved in Newton's 1st Law of Motion (also known as the Law of Inertia). There are three kinds of friction: static, sliding, and rolling. We discussed the effects of all three on our daily existence.
Homework: Students are to read 4 pages in their textbook. Re-read pages 310 and 311; then finish reading section one of Chapter 11 (p. 314-315). After reading, they are to create a basic picture rendition of each of the three kinds of friction in their science notebooks. We will share and discuss these in class tomorrow.
