Walking on Water

Students use this problem to help them to relate to force vectors: Suspend a meterstick horizontally between two tables. Place a 1kg mass in the middle of the meterstick. Notice the bend of the meterstick. Explain why the meterstick bends? Replace the 1 kg mass with a 100 gram mass. Describe the difference in bending. Replance the 100 gram mass with a 5 gram mass. Once again, describe the difference in bending.

Starting a new program means developing new lesson plans. I was surprised to see hundreds of lesson plans already created for my classroom subject. This gives me the inspiration I need to create my own. Many great ideas - a gold mine.
