Forces that Oppose Motion - It's Not Just Science Friction
A very scientific-looking but appealing set of slides helps you teach young physicists about the force of friction. First explain what static friction is and demonstrate how to solve problems. Then introduce kinetic friction and the...

Penny Perfect Properties (Solid-Liquid Interations)
I can get more water to stay on a penny than you can! Collaborative pairs determine the volume of liquids that can be contained on the surface of copper pennies and plastic coins. The pairs analyze their results using graphs and go on to...

New Review Sliders (for High School)
Slip sliding away. Groups investigates the two types of friction by running an experiment that allows them to calculate the coefficient of static friction and the coefficient of kinetic friction. The experiment uses a box, a basket, and...
