Spring Thing

Ninth graders investigate Sir Isaac Newton’s equation F=ma.  In this Algebra I lesson, 9th graders use a CBL, a force probe, and a motion detector to collect and analyze force and acceleration data for a mass bobbing up and down on a spring.  Students use the data collected to investigate and verify Newton’s equations.
