Project Based Learning Activity Using Physics/Math

My Students

My students have innovative ideas, and these manipulative sets will allow students to be creative while learning.

My students are quite diverse and are in an urban school.

Our school is classified as a poverty school. We are determined to not let the poverty label loom over our heads as we work to develop lifelong learners. I believe in the children and they believe in themselves. Together, they will achieve greatness.

My Project

The K'Nex sets will be used to investigate the laws of physics, while incorporating math skill. Students will be required to use scientific method to plan and conduct an experiment. They will analyze data, and if need be, start the process over again.

Hands-on experience is a great way to learn and understand.

Students will see the value in working together as a team, bouncing ideas off of each other. This will give them lifelong skill of teamwork, as they work together to construct a roller coaster.
