Modeling Damped Motion

Students model damped motion.  In this modeling damped motion lesson, students collect data on an oscillating spring with a mass hanger.  Students create a scatter plot of their data and find a sinusoidal function to fit the data.  Students determine the period by determining the time between maximums.

Lesson Planet has given me great ideas for 3rd grade science hands-on activities! I even got a note from one of my principals observing my class while I was using one of the lessons that I found through this website; she LOVED what I was doing and that the kids were excited and very involved.
