About the Lesson

In this Science Nspired module, students will explore gravity and the relationship between mass and gravity. Students will use a simulation to explore a basketball and a feather falling to Earth with air resistance and in a vacuum. They can modify the initial position of the drop and the elasticity of each object and then examine the height, velocity, and acceleration of the object as a function of time. This Lesson Guide allows you to preview the variety of activities provided for this module, as well as gives a suggested flow (lesson plan) of the lesson.  This Lesson Guide is a TI-Nspire PublishViewTM document (.tnsp)
