The Lift Equation

For Teachers 9th - 10th
Students use the FoilSim educational software program to complete an activity regarding lift. They solve a multivariable equation for each of the variables and apply the results to various problems in different situations.
Lesson Planet

Gravity VS Lift

For Teachers 10th - 11th
Learners examine gravity and lift. In this teacher demo lesson plan, students observe how lift must be greater than gravity for something to fly.
Lesson Planet

Helicopter

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students demonstrate the effects of aerodynamics. In this aerodynamics lesson students name parts of the helicopter and construct a device that can fly. Students works to  build their own paper helicopter.
