PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This zip file package contains a five page physical science laboratory activity on velocity and acceleration. Students are asked to do set up an inclined plane at varying angles and then using simple materials determine the velocity and acceleration of the object rolling down the incline. The students are required to graph and infer relationships from their data. The activity also makes connections to Galileo's classic experiment involving different masses and gravity.

Answer keys and documents in both word and pdf format are also included, as well as the five pages of student lab handouts in this zip file. The lab has been correlated to the appropriate Next Generation Science Standards, as well as the corresponding performance indicators of the New York State Intermediate Level Science curriculum.
