Five Pre-lab & Lab activities in Newtonian Mechanics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Present five pre-lab activities utilizing white boards to prepare students for the subsequent lab activities in Newtonian mechanics. Projectile motion, determination of friction & its coefficient, conservation of energy, determination of the spring constant, and conservation of momentum in two dimensions. Participants will work in small groups to prepare white boards to share with the whole group for each topic. Participants will receive copies of the pre-lab and lab activity that are covered. The lab activities presented utilize the GMLAD which will on exhibit at the conference. Key to success of a lab activity is the student’s prerequisite skills. This workshop focuses on 5 pre-lab white board activities with the corresponding lab activities in Newtonian mechanics utilizing the GMLAD. The activities will cover projectile motion; kinematics, Newton’s 2nd Law, Determination of Friction and its Coefficient, Conservation of Energy, Determination of the Spring Constant, and Conservation of Momentum in 2 Dimensions.
