Inclined Planes

Students break into small groups with each group using 3 books, a board with pulleys attached at both ends, a toy cart, a small paper cup with a long piece of string attached the end and some pennies. They test their guesses to see if it takes more pennies to move a cart up stairs or up to the same height using a ramp.
