PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this exciting lab to help students discover speed, velocity and acceleration and how various motions are represented graphically. This product includes almost everything you will need for this lab with the exception of measuring tape, timing device, and metal washers (or other similar weights).

Before the lab, students are assigned a task (job cards are included) and 4 different "walkers" are given specific walking jobs (walking cards included).

As each walker walks, a time keeper calls out the time every 2 seconds. Distance markers are placed along the walking track every 2 seconds and data is recorded. After data has been collected on all 4 walkers, students create line graphs using the data. Students are able to see visual representations of their classmates motions on the graphs. Students will see the following motions represented graphically: constant speed, acceleration, low speed, high speed, stopped (no motion), and returning to start.

Students love it and you will love the test scores that show your students mastering the concepts!
