Thank you very much for taking the time to read my proposal. I am a high school Physics teacher in inner city Los Angeles. The school year is getting ready to begin and I am very excited. One of the first major concepts my students learn about in Physics is 'Force'. By the end of this unit, I want my students to understand how forces can affect themselves, the planets, and every single other object (Newton's wonderful first, second and third laws - I hope you still remember these from your high school Physics class). In order to really ingrain the concept of force into their brilliant minds I want my students to have the chance perform inquiry based labs in my classroom. Through this proposal, I hope to acquire a set of force boards for my classroom. Force boards provide students with the most effective hands-on method in which to learn about forces. With force boards my students will be able to observe how unbalanced and balanced forces can affect an object. They will learn how multiple forces acting upon an object can balance out to keep that object at rest (Newton's first law). They will also be able to change the direction in which a force is applied to an object and observe how that can affect the object. Force boards are an engaging and inquiry based method for students to grasp the concept of force. Physics education research shows that this is by far the most effective way for students to understand concepts they encounter in Physics. Please help me make this possibility a reality for my students.
