Watt's The Deal?

Students use the CBL to collect data on the brightness of different light bulbs and associate these values with the watt ratings for each bulb. Then they will graph the data and compute the rate of change.

Millikan Oil Drop Experiment Simulation

Students run a simulation on the TI-83+ or TI-84+ graphing calculator to perform a variation of the Millikan Oil Drop Experiment. The goal is to adjust the voltage across parallel plates until a droplet is suspended between the plates. The data can ba analyzed to determine the charge on the droplet.

Using CBR in Egg Drop Competition

Egg drop competition is a popular activity to reinforce the lessons in force and motion. In the activity, the students are asked to design a vehicle to carry the egg safely when dropped from a height of 10 feet (about 3 m) or more.
Real-time and concrete data collected and analyzed during the design process of the vehicle can help the students think critically. The activity is both fun and self-motivating for the students.

Work and Power

Students explore the relationship between power, work, and time. They also explore the relationship between power, force, and speed. Based on these explorations, students derive the equation P = Fv and solve problems dealing with power in various mechanical problems.

Simple Harmonic Motion

Students collect data on the motion of a simple pendulum. They then graph the acceleration of the pendulum vs. its displacement to show that the displacement of the pendulum is directly proportional to the force acting on it. They use this information to confirm that the motion of the pendulum fulfills the requirements of simple harmonic motion.
