Friction-What a Drag

Students predict the factors that affect frictional force by exploring surfaces and "trains". In this physics lesson, small groups predict and explore frictional force using various surface materials. Exploration time is allowed, and then the teacher brings the group together to discuss the controlled variables in the experiment. The students return to their experiment to draw conclusions.
