Product Description
This science lab is perfect for introductory physics classes. It introduces students to Hooke's Law, which describes the relationship between force and spring displacement.

This lab includes a student handout with specific instructions, but I've included an idea for how to make this a more inquiry-based lab as well. This gives you the flexibility to mold this lab to fit your teaching style and desired outcome for your students.

This product includes:
- Detailed teacher instructions with variation and extension ideas.
- A student handout sheet with background information, materials list, a suggested lab procedure, data table, and analysis questions.
- Student pre-lab questions.
- Pre-lab question answer key.
- Sample data with graphs and slope calculations.

Including a short pre-lab discussion and student data collection, this lab is estimated to take one 40-minute class period to complete.

I hope your students will enjoy this lab and that you will enjoy teaching it.

*Note: My plan for the lab references a set of springs purchased from one of the science supply catalogs. The one I used is referenced in the teacher's instructions document. You do not need to buy this particular set, though. Any set of springs with different tensions should work.
