Pendulums Swing Into Motion

Students 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.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
