Product Description
EXPAND THE USE OF SPREADSHEETS IN YOUR PHYSICS CURRICULUM... This Physics activity good for all levels of Physics is a free preview of "The Spreadsheet Lab Manual." It guides students to construct a mathematical simulation starting from a blank spreadsheet that quantitatively models freefall with air resistance as an object reaches terminal velocity. Students will be guided through an inquiry based simulation as they answer assessment questions and gain skills on spreadsheets while manipulating variables and seeing the model outputs.

Student data has validated the pedagogy of the activities in The Spreadsheet Lab Manual and has been used over 3 revisions to ensure the highest quality content and instructional experience. Also included are an introductory powerpoint presentation, the completed spreadsheet that could also be obtained by following the procedures and the descriptive answer key.
