Roller Coaster Physics

Age: 16+
SKU: 78880
The K'NEX® Roller Coaster Physics Set is designed to help students as they learn how to design and conduct scientific investigations, identify variables of the problem and select appropriate independent and dependent variables for investigations. They will determine the steps necessary to control a variable, observe and record the response, and interpret the results. They will measure, record, and analyze the data for patterns, construct scatter plots or histograms as a graphic representation of the data, and mathematically interpret those graphs The Teacher's Guide offers ideas, in the form of nine lab exercises, that outline ways in which students in grades 11 and 12 may use the set to study physics, and in particular mechanics. The studies adopt a hands-on, student-inquiry based approach in which the teacher is encouraged to develop each lab investigation using the 5E model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, and Evaluate) of inquiry while students utilize the Four Question Strategy for experiment design.

Exciting STEM Set! The K'NEX® Education Simple Machines Deluxe set is designed to introduce students to the scientific concepts associated with simple machines – Levers, Pulleys, Wheel & Axles, Inclined Planes, including Wedge and Screw, and Gears. Students are provided with the opportunity to acquire skills using a hands-on, inquiry based approach to information and concepts. Working cooperatively, students are encouraged to interact with each other as they build, investigate, discuss and evaluate scientific principles in action. The teacher's guide provides a glossary of key terms and definitions, includes an overview of the concepts associated with the different simple machines, identifies student objectives for each investigation, and offers plans and scripts to successfully present selected models and their associated activities. Student Activity and Reference Sheets comprise illustrations and definitions of some of the concepts featured in the model building activities.
