NAMES  In groups   1) Observe the two cartoon segments (RoadRunner and RogerRabbit) Write next to each physics concept (you may not be able to find them all) the letters from the scenes in the cartoons where you could identify the concept/principle or law being portrayed accurately.  Circle the scene letter where it was portrayed inaccurately.  Write a word or two next to the letter ONLY if you think it will be needed to explain why you picked that.               Then: Pick at least 5 (2 people) to 7 (3 people) scenes (or sequence of scenes, if that makes more sense). Make sure they cover a range of topics. Write at least a paragraph for each one explaining the physics concepts that you see portrayed in the scene, especially those that are portrayed accurately and inaccurately.  In your explanation, explain what quantities  physicist might measure and calculations they might make in order to determine the principles and properties shown.  Diagrams or pictures are OK.  You may work on this together in or out of class, but must be handed in by the beginning of the exam.
