PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Who can think of a better way to study gravity than by dropping stuff and catching it? This fun lab allows students to not only compete against their peers for fastest reaction times, but it also allows them to use their kinematic equations to back solve for time and final velocity. Students will also create velocity-time graphs as well as acceleration-time graphs, interpreting slope and drawing conclusions about their initial hypotheses.

My students have a blast doing this lab that requires only a meter stick or ruler and a calculator. This is great for common core, NGSS and just basic investigation and experimentation.

MATH TEACHERS: If you give a little bit of background about the variables in the equations (v = velocity, x = displacement, a = acceleration, t = time), you can easily have your students do this fun experiment.
