New Review 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 activity of an 11-part series. Then, through an experiment varying...

New Review Accelerometer: Centripetal Acceleration
Scholars build robotic arms that swing back and forth and use them to collect velocity and acceleration data. To analyze the results, pupils compare data to the equations for angular velocity and centripetal acceleration.
