Lesson Planet

#### Pendulum Motion

Students explore questions which cannot be handled with simple pendulums, and examine both the usefulness and the limitations of approximations in science. A Java applet created from a Stella model is included.

Lesson Planet

#### The Learning Tower of Straws Challenge

Students construct a tower as high as possible that can successfully lean without collaspling. They examine the effect that lowering an object's center of gravity has on the torque produced on an object.

Lesson Planet

#### Robot Gears

Students build simple gear trains and record data to discover how to compute gear ratios. They investigate the definition of torque and how torque can be increased or decreased in a gear train.

Lesson Planet

#### The Center of Mass

Young scholars determine the center of mass of two irregularly shaped objects, determine when the center of mass is inside or outside the boundaries of the object, determine when and/or why an object is stable, balanced, unstable or...

Lesson Planet

#### Wheels on the Bot Go Round and Round, Part II

Young scholars hypothesize about the relationship betweenÂ tire size of CEENBoT and ability to move a load. In this physics lesson, students design an experiment to test their hypothesis. They record results and formulate their conclusion.

Lesson Planet

#### Gyrocopters-Producing Rotary Motion

Students demonstrate rotary motion by practicing with gyrocopters. In this physics instructional activity students work in groups to construct a gyrocopter and explore how physics effect it torque and inertia.

Lesson Planet

#### Learn about Torque

Learners calculate torque and determine its uses. In this lesson on torque, students watch a video and teacher demonstrations and work with a small group on a lab activity. Learners provide example of how torque is used in daily life,...

Lesson Planet

#### Physics 240: Motion

In this motion worksheet, students calculate the velocity of an object and the value of the coefficient of friction. Students determine the magnitude of torque and angular acceleration of a system. This worksheet has 5 problems to solve.

Lesson Planet

#### Gearing Up--Learning About Gears

In this learning about gears learning exercise, 5th graders read and discuss a 1 page article on gears, fill in 7 blanks to complete 5 facts about gears and make a set of gears from a template provided in the learning exercise.

Lesson Planet

#### Torque Play

For this physics worksheet, students use torque to explain several very odd phenomena. They write the definition of torque and the relation between torque and change in angular momentum.

Lesson Planet

#### Work and the Farm

Students listen to a lecture by the teacher about farm work and ways to use physics to make farm work easier. The machines that are highlighted include pulleys, ramps, lever, and gears. Each machine is explained in context of its use in...

Lesson Planet

#### Torque Lab

Students investigate torque in a inquiry situation. They use a meter stick as a balance to determine mass of various unknown masses. A worksheet and pre lab activity is provided.

Lesson Planet

#### Science: Vectors

Students solve vector problems and identify the x and y coordinates. They determine if the coordinates are positive, negative, or zero. Students solve problems and convert the x and y coordinates to magnitude and direction.

Lesson Planet

#### Attributes of Accuracy

Middle schoolers explain necessity in using accurate instruments when measuring, and how measurements can be checked for accuracy. They make a six-inch ruler, design, test, and evaluate a system to measure work, and produce a table and...

Lesson Planet

#### The Pork With Torque

Students determine the torque of CEENBoTs wheel hub. For this physics lesson, students reinforce their learning by exploring interactive websites on torque. They give real life applications of torque.

Lesson Planet

#### Physics

In this physics instructional activity, students apply what they know about torque to create a mobile. Students complete a diagram to label the seesaws for equilibrium.

Lesson Planet

#### Balanced Forces

Students are able to explain why football running backs benefit from having a lower center of gravity when opponents are trying to tackle them. They explain why racing cars are designed to have a low center of gravity. Students explain...

Lesson Planet

#### LEGO Balance

Students design and build a balance using LEGO, string, and a set of standard metric weights.

Lesson Planet

#### Forces and Balloons

Students investigate the forces of compression, tension and torque on common birthday balloons.
