Target Grades: 9-14
Students use simple pendulums to accurately determine the passage of time. Real data is recorded as students determine the effects of independent variables on periodicity while also learning about kinetic and potential energy. Includes instructor’s manual, reproducible stepwise instructions for students, guided calculations, assessment questions, sample data, complete answer keys, and all materials for activities. Required, but not included: balance or scale accurate to .01 g. Appropriate for any level physics course (including AP) as well as general science courses. Designed for working in groups of four to six, with materials sufficient for up to 36 students. Meets national standards for grades 9-12.
