Description

Students plan and carry out this experiment to learn the basics of experimental design, collecting data and summarizing results.

This lab can be done in-school or at-home - only need a measuring stick/tape, small ball and tape.

This lab allows students to discover the challenges of conducting a controlled experiment through trial and error. It’s perfect for pairing with a lesson on kinetic and potential energy and can be completed in one class period.

Through this activity students are challenged to do the following:

• Identify variables and constants

• Examine experimental design

• Graph data

• Summarize results

Supplies are minimal and cheap:

• Balls – small bounce balls work well ( and are very cheap)

• Meter sticks, yard sticks or measuring tape (1 or 2 per group)

• Masking tape to secure meter sticks/measuring tape to wall

Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle. Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
