Pendulums Swing Into Motion

Young scholars examine the relationship between energy, work, and force through the use of pendulums. In small groups they conduct an experiment to analyze how the weight of a washer and the length of the string affects the number of swings, input the data from the experiment into a spreadsheet program, and present their results to the class.

I've been playing around in the account all morning and I have to say I'm very impressed! The site is amazing! I'm also a Title I tutor (and a summer tutor) so this will help me out a TON when coming up with materials for my students both during Title I tutoring and summer tutoring! The amount of time Lesson Planet will save me is going to be mind blowing!
