Verification of the Acceleration Due to Gravity by a Simple Pendulum
We know pendulums were used in ancient Egypt and Rome, but it is thought they were also used pre-recorded history. Scholars build their own simple pendulums in the sixth lesson of an 11-part series. Then, through an experiment varying...

Direction of Acceleration Due to Gravity Vectors
Many realistic situations of active forces are presented here along with diagrams. The direction of movement, acceleration and gravity are labeled on each picture to help understanding. A summary of the direction of acceleration should...

Existence: One-to-One Functions and Inverses
One-to-one means the answer is simple, right? Given four graphs, pupils use a vertical line to test each graph to find out if they are one-to-one. By using the resource, learners realize that not all one-to-one relations are functions....
