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 use Lesson Planet for supplementary activities/projects every week. I'm currently researching for a current events rubric and found several options. It's great!
