Product Description
This activity or project is a follow up to watching a Michael Phelps Race to enage students with a real world physics problem. This activity uses calculations to determine average speed, analyze data from different races, predict and calculate his performance in the individual medley, and compare predicted to actual results. My students found this a much more interesting problem than the typical rolling a car or ball down a ramp. I hope you will find it useful in your class!
