To see the relationship between mass and acceleration of an object.
(8 groups of 3)………….8 pairs of scissors 8 spring carts
1 roll of masking tape 8 metersticks
8 sheets of plain paper 8 pencils
16 masses of 1 kg
Students will work in groups of three. In the group, one will be the starter, one will be the spotter, and one will be the recorder. The recorder will make a data chart as follows:
|Distance Cart Moved||Distance Cart Moved With 1 Mass||Distance Cart Moved With 2 Masses||Conclusions|
5 A. Explanation on paper shows understanding that force produces acceleration.
B. Explanation on paper shows the more mass the less distance the cart will travel.
4 A. Explanation on paper shows the more mass the less distance the cart will travel.
3 All information on data chart recorded.
2 About half of the information on data chart recorded.
1 No information recorded at all.
