An Inclined Plane

Ninth graders experiment with force.  In this Algebra I/Physical Science lesson, 9th graders use a force sensor to measure the force needed to lift an object and the force needed to pull the same object up an inclined plane.  Students calculate and compare work done in lifting and pulling.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
