Abstract

By Deborah Kane. This activity reviews the concept of acceleration and then introduces students to a sensor that records acceleration. The lab exercise leads the students through several exploratory questions and suggestions and ultimately asks them to consider what this sensor is used for outside of the classroom. This activity requires advance preparation to order the sensors. Please see attached document.

These activities were designed to use QCNLive as the main teaching tool.  These activities could supplement classroom instruction that you are already doing.  There are several websites that have some great activities for instruction for all ages.  Please contact Jennifer Saltzman.
