Messing with Momentum
Twenty-one thought-provoking questions about momentum and impulse fill the page. Physics enthusiasts describe momentum, relate it to impulse, describe conservation of momentum, and define two types of collisions. They apply equations in order to find the force of friction, impulse, velocity, and momentum.

Collisions adn Momentum: Bouncing Balls
Students explore the concepts of potential and kinetic energy by bouncing assorted balls on different surfaces and calculating the momentum for each ball. They give examples of collisions and momentum in sports and understand that collisions and momentum play an important role in the design of safe automobiles.

Marbles and Momentum
Students examine the law of conservation of momentum. In this physics lesson, students play marbles in order to compare the mass of the marble and velocities effects. Students receive directions of the marbles game and collect data while playing marbles of how the varied mass of marbles effects each other.

Forces (Momentum) Learning Center
Ninth graders investigate momentum and force. In this Physical Science lesson plan, 9th graders will participate in activities at three different science centers. The students will be using vernier probes and software to calculate momentum in center one, create a Newton's Laws PowerPoint in center two, and create a summary of their work using a photo story in center three.

Bill Nye The Science Guy on Momentum
Build momentum in your physical science class with this clip. When teaching Newton's second law of motion, you can use it to introduce the role played by mass in momentum. Be aware, however, that about a third of the video is simply made up of black and white footage of different scenarios where momentum is involved, such as riding a bike downhill and kicking a ball.
