PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In these inquiry activities, students determine the relationship between string length, mass, and drop angle on the period of a pendulum. This swinging hands-on activity uses the scientific method and is similar to the experiments Galileo himself performed! All the result tables are provided, as is a grading rubric for a pendulum lab write up. The activities can take anywhere from one to three class periods.

An extension assignment is described and graph paper is included.
