In order to complete the labs with your students, the
following supplies are needed:
• Plastic cups
• Notecards
• Coins (quarters work best)
• Rulers

• 3 pieces of pipe foam for each group
(found at hardware stores – you have to cut the tube
in half lenghtwise to make a “track”. I have also seen
successful rollercoasters made with pool noodles cut
the same way)
