The goal of this one week first grade module is to have students create an informational science board in which they explain how objects are affected by pushes and pulls. The students will create one science board. The science board will be folded to mirror an actual science board used for...

## Building Bridges

CertifiedStudents will participate in an inquiry-based experiment in which they will design and construct a wooden bridge that can support as much weight as possible given size constraints. A reading self-assessment will be given to students prior to module implementation. The data gained from the...

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to:

- Model a periodic situation, the height of a person on a Ferris wheel, using trigonometric functions.
- Interpret the constants
*a, b, c*in the formula*h*=*a + b*cos*ct*...

When thinking of car design, students usually only think of the shape (aerodynamics) of the car when they think of design. Through this module, students will better understand that design encompasses more than shape. Force and motion are a unit that covers speed, velocity, acceleration, weight,...

Students are tasked with designing a complex circuit that incorporates at least five different electrical devices. All devices must be run using a 15 volt DC power supply, but must operate at design voltages between 2 to 15 volts. This requires the use of resistors in the circuit.

This accident reconstruction report asks students to use data supplied to analyze and make an informed decision on whether a guardrail company or the driver was at fault when a car crashed through the guardrail.

Amusement park rides all involve physics of motion, especially concepts of potential energy and kinetic energy. Engineers need to analyze and understand how physics will affect a rider throughout the course of a ride. This task will allow students to explore physics concepts while designing a...
