In this lab projects students will make their own Conservation of Momentum Problem and prove it through math and draw it on a poster. This project helps them better understand how Momentum MUST be conserved throughout the problem as they research and create their own real life situation.
My students love doing this one each and every year. It gives them the chance to look up their own information and draw conclusion from their own problem.
This can work with any grade level. All you need to do is increase or decrease the level of math you are going to expect from them to prove the problem.
This activity is similar to my Roller Coaster/Conservation of Energy project. So if your students like or liked that one, there is a good chance they will love this one too!
