Slope, Vectors, and Wind Pressure
A hands-on activity using the TI-CBR Motion Detector to provide information to graph and analyze. The class uses this information to calculate the slope of motion graphs and differentiate scalar and vector quantities. There is a real-world activity of a Roof Manufacturer's Test in regards to the pitch of roofs, as well as several other real-world scenarios.
