The nature of physics experiments (in the high school classroom) creates a perfect situation to allow students to generate their own testable questions. Many of the safety concerns that might exist in other disciplines can often be avoided when teaching classical physics, as the materials are much more benign. This catalyst was originally designed and tested in an SPH 3U classroom using the concept of friction, but it could be easily adapted to other classes and scenarios.
The purpose of this activity is to bridge the gap between grade 9 electricity and grade 11 physics. In grade 9 you focus on current, voltage and resitance. This activity focuses on bringing these... read more
