Learning Objective:

  • To plan an investigation to identify factors that determine the friction force between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your Shipping & Sliding Experiment packet. Get out your Data Table (on graph paper).
  2. Investigation– Shipping and Sliding (Friction) experiment- Complete graph. Discussion: How does the type of floor material affect the amount of friction? Period 3- How does mass affect the amount of friction? What solution would you recommend to the shipping company?
  3. CFA #3– Friction
  4. Educational video– Bill Nye Friction, Science of the Winter OlympicsFriction and Heat: The Science of SpeedFriction PhET simulation
