Newton's Hat Trick

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are challenged to develop skits illustrating each of Newton's three laws of motion. They are asked to identify examples of Newton's laws in sports. Students are asked how does Newton's third law allow a runner to run?
Lesson Planet

Breathing Victory

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students know that participation in sports requires energy. They comprehend that we get energy form the foods that we eat and the air thta we breathe. Converting food and air into usable energy is defined as celluar respiration. Students...
Lesson Planet

Tracking Speed

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Young scholars calculate the speed of an object, by measuring the amount of time it takes to cover a given distance, and then divide: speed=distance/time. However, the object may not have been moving at a constant rate over the given...
Lesson Planet

The Gear Game

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students discuss that the conservatin of energy states that the energy imput must equal the energy output. They then figure out how can a machine help you to perform task otherwise considered impossible? Students discuss the six simple...
Lesson Planet

Walking on Water

For Teachers 9th - 12th
High schoolers use this problem to help them to relate to force vectors: Suspend a meterstick horizontally between two tables. Place a 1kg mass in the middle of the meterstick. Notice the bend of the meterstick. Explain why the...
Lesson Planet

Big Air Rules

For Teachers 8th - 10th
Students discuss projectile motion using a basketball player taking off for a slam dunk, a fly ball launched off a hitter's bat, and a snowboarder flying off a pipe as examples. The lesson is expanded by introducing the mathematical...
Lesson Planet

Relaxing with Impulse

For Teachers 8th - 10th
Learners discuss Newton's second law of motion in terms of momentum and impulse using examples of landing on concrete versus dirt if you were to jump off an elevated platform or football players wearing protective padding. Mathematical...
Lesson Planet

Boarding School

For Teachers 7th - 9th
Young scholars discuss conservation of energy using a skateboarder in the halfpipe or a person on a roller coaster as an example. Using mathematical equations, students examine potential and kinetic energy of the examples. Lesson is...
Lesson Planet

Batting the Unknown

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students use batting averages to provide a measure of a player's past success. They use Algebra to calculate required performance to improve the average. Students compare baseball batting statistics early in the season and late in the...
Lesson Planet

Ice Ain't Easy

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are introduced to the laws of thermodynamics. The 1st law of thermodynamics states that the energy must be conserved when two objects of different temperatures come in contact. If one object gains energy, the other object must...
Lesson Planet

Breathing Victory

For Teachers 7th - 8th
Students discuss anaerobic respiration and how it relates to sprinting. After discussion of related processes, students create a brochure that explains the complex processes behind every muscular interaction.
Lesson Planet

The Math Reaction

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students use the reaction time to figure out problems. They use the following example to get them started with reaction time: the edge of a ruler is placed near a person's thumb and index finger and, without warning, the ruler is...
Lesson Planet

Running on Metrics

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students use the metric system to convert equations. They use a conversion table to change from metric units to the units they are more comfortable with (Fahrenheit temperatures, miles, quarts, pounds.) Students use algebraic equations...
Lesson Planet

Perpetual Motion

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are introduced to the concept of Energy Conservation with the example of: Tony Hawk seems to defy the conservation of energy as he keeps reaching new heights on each pass on the halk-pipe. Actually, Tony is supplying the extra...
Lesson Planet

The Trig To Soccer

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are given the background information to open the lesson: Suppose a penalty kicker in soccer could choose where he could kick from, as long as he stayed on the back line of the penalty area. Would he have a better chance of...
Lesson Planet

Running With Momentum

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Young scholars discuss the conservation of momentum in a collision between two bumper cars. They are given the equation for momentum. Students then solve problems using the equation for momentum.
Lesson Planet

In Golf Gravitas

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Young scholars are introduced to potential and kinetic energy through the example of a ball being thrown straight up in the air. They are then told that the energy associated with the position of the object is referred to as potential...
Lesson Planet

That Mu You Do

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are told that the weight of a car is equal to its mass multiplied by the acceleration due to gravity. When a car is at react on a horizontal road, there must be a normal force with which the road pushes up on the car to keep it...
Lesson Planet

Cartesian Baseball

For Teachers 9th - 12th
Students are told what a coordinate system is and also that it provides a way of uniquely describing each point on a plane or in space. They are given a practice problem along with the equation. Students solve the following problem:...
