Due Date: (Tuesday) 4-17-2018

Advice on Writing:

  1. DO NOT use “I”. We know it is you, you are the author.
  2. Many don’t like to do it, but OUTLINE first.
  3. Last paragraph, in anything, is essentially “Why should the reader care?”

Next Generation Science Standards:

HS-PS 2-5 Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence than an electric current can produce a magnetic field and that a changing magnetic field can produce an electric current

HS-PS 3-5 Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to interaction.
