Product Description
One of the best ways to explore physics and how it relates to the real world is through sports. Every sport utilizes multiple physics principles. For this project, students will choose a sport and study the physics principles involved.

Students will work on a team of three people. Each group will choose a sport that they would like to focus on for this project and create a PowerPoint or Google Docs presentation to represent the physics involved in the sport. Groups will have a detailed checklist which outlines information to include on each slide. After creating their presentation, groups will share their findings with the rest of the class.

Required elements include: historical evolution of the sport, description, physical characteristics of athletes, equipment and physics behind each example, speed, balanced/unbalanced forces, Newton's First Law/Inertia, Newton's Second Law, Newton's Third Law, friction, gravity
