PACT Due Dates

Fan Carts (Monte Rompal)

Standards:

1. Newton’s laws predict the motion of most objects. As a basis for understanding this
concept:
a.  Students know how to solve problems that involve constant speed and average
speed.

Objective-

This lab is part two of a discovery lab, aimed at helping students discover the relationship between displacement, speed, and acceleration.


Prior Learning:
Students should already know:
- Graphing (including dependent and independent variables)
- The metric system and basic unit conversions

Materials (per group)

1 Instruction sheet (see page 10)
1 Fan cart (with batteries as needed)
