This is an experiment for students dealing with friction, force, and motion. It will take students through each step of the scientific method. The students will be using a binder and matchbox car to discover how friction effects how far a car will go. They will make a car go down a binder, measure, and record how far it went. Then, they will put the car down the ramp again using sandpaper, wax paper, and bubble wrap. These results will be recorded. The students will finish by making a conclusion and seeing if their hypothesis was correct. A recording sheet and directions are included.
