Sensor - Dual Range Force
In this activity, students walk through an engineering design project that has a cool algebra twist. Students will develop a foundational relationship between mass, force, and gravity.
Students are challenged to build a bridge strong enough to support the force sensor and some washers using only a single sheet of paper.
Students collect force data using the Vernier Dual Range Force sensor, washers, and their graphing calculator.
Students analyze the data by making a scatterplot, fitting a linear regression curve to the data, then interpreting the slope and intercept in context.
