This TWO-DAY Ramp and Pulley lesson package (includes a worksheet with answer key) has worked very well for my students and will allow yours to also grasp this very difficult concept. It begins by introducing Tension and teaches your students how to solve Atwood Machine Problems as well as Ramp and Pulley Problems with Friction. On the last slide there is a video link which fully reviews two difficult problems, taking you through them step-by-step.
Within the lesson there are many opportunities for students to test their knowledge through "Check Your Understanding" slides with the teacher version containing the answers (these are generally problem-based questions like they would see on a test or quiz). There is 1 video embedded in the PowerPoint. Simply start the slideshow and click the image and it will automatically open in your browser. The lesson contains diagrams, examples and explanations. It includes the lesson (student and teacher versions of the PowerPoint) and a student lesson handout as a word document which follows the PowerPoint.
Included in the lesson package is:
- The teacher version of the PowerPoint
- The student version of the PowerPoint
- 1 video embedded into the PowerPoint
- Many opportunities for students to check their understanding
- Worksheet with answer key
- Student lesson handout
In order, the lesson covers:
- Solving Atwood Machine Problems
- The Ramp
- Solving Ramp Problems with Friction
The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
