#### In-Line Inertia

Students practice calculating the moment of inertia when discussing a skater and the position in which it is best to spin. After class discussion, students practice calculating inertia on their own.

Lesson Planet

#### That Mu You Do

Students discussion frictional force, kinetic friction, and static friction and the role each plays in acceleration and velocity in relationship to a car and the road on which it is traveling. Students complete lesson answering review...

Lesson Planet

#### Newton's Earthquake

Students discuss Newton's 2nd and 3rd laws using the example of a football linebacker and a small child pushing against each other on an ice rink. Students are able to visualize the results of the push and link it to the laws. Discussion...

#### Pendulum Motion Experiments

Students experiment with simple pendulums to determine the validity of an equation for all angles. Students discover the usefulnes and limitations of approximations in science. Using spreadhseets and a java applet, students observe the...

Lesson Planet

#### Space Ship Pilot

High schoolers visualize the relation between acceleration and velocity in 2 dimensions. They are introduced to Newton's first law,and Newton's second law. Students work on an exploration activity where they condsider an example of a...

Lesson Planet

#### Space Ship Pilot

Students visualize the relationship between acceleration and velocity as they maneuver a model spaceship in a 2-dimensional applet.

Lesson Planet

#### Calculating & Graphing Using a Spreadsheet

Students use the lab apparatus to calculate the average velocity and average acceleration at several points and record the data. They use the spreadsheets to plot distance vs. time, velocity vs. time and acceleration vs. time graphs.

Lesson Planet

#### Amusement Park Attractions

Students record and analyze acceleration data collected on amusement park rides. They concentrate on the effects of acceleration on their bodies w hile collecting data.

Lesson Planet

#### Rockets

Students explain the basics of rocketry and explain the relationships between mass, acceleration, and thrust.

Lesson Planet

#### Aircraft Trajectory Problem Set

Students, after reading an explanation from a NASA Web-based textbook, demonstrate an understanding of the text by applying it to the calculation of speed, distance, acceleration, and time in simple aircraft motion.
