Can You Handle the Stress

Students determine the Young's modulus for four different materials in two different ways and compare the stiffness of the materials based upon this value. A comparison is made between the stiffness or elastic modulus to figure out equations. In the test, students vary the amount of force applied to the material to make the appropriate measurements of the displacement of the material.

I just completed my student teaching in Newark New Jersey. Creating unit plans became a breeze once I joined Lesson Planet. There was a plethora of resources for every CCSS. Thank you. I had veteran teachers asking me where did I get my resources. I am now teaching at my cooperative school. Yeah!!!!!!!!!
