Students investigate friction by attempting to slow down a ball or marble as it travels down a ramp. Students collect data by using a timer to measure the amount of time it takes the ball or marble from a starting point at the top of the ramp, to the ending point at the bottom of the ramp.
HOW IS THIS PRODUCT DIFFERENT THAN OTHER SIMILAR ONES?
*Students collect and analyze data by timing rolling objects as they travel down a covered Hot Wheels ramp.
*Students write a claim with supporting evidence using their collected data.
*A link to an online simulation is included
*Connections to NGSS are outlined.
