Product Description
Gym Weight Lifting Activity (Math)
Appropriate for grades 7-8 & Homeschool


PURPOSE:
This activity is a great activity for applying mathematics inside the realm of weight lifting. Students will be required to calculate volumes of weight plates (cylinders), convert between units and determine their densities to discover their metal makeup. In a challenge problem, students will have to figure out how a rubber coated weight plate works and calculate even more volumes and densities.

STORY:
I was working out at a gym lately when I wondered what types of metals were used in dumbbells or weight plates. I decided to do a little math and figure it out. This is definitely something in which students (especially the tough, too-cool-for-school boys) are interested.
