Car and Ramp


[Kids with equipment]

[Car and Ramp guide]

A fantastic starting point for understanding force and motion, the Car and Ramp module engages students in accurate and repeatable investigations of gravity, friction, speed, acceleration, Newton's laws, and simple machines. Plus, students see how algebra has real-world applications as they use it to express their discoveries. Precision markings and extensive variable control ensure accurate, repeatable results.
