## Lesson Plans

Olympic Snowboard Design:

This MEA requires students to design a custom snowboard for five Olympic athletes, taking into consideration how their height and weight affect the design elements of a snowboard. There are several factors that go into the design of a snowboard, and the students must use reasoning skills to determine which factors are more important and why, as well as what factors to eliminate or add based on the athlete's style and preferences. After the students have designed a board for each athlete, they will report their procedure and reasons for their decisions.

Type: Lesson Plan

BIOSCOPES Summer Institute 2013 - Forces:

This lesson is designed to be part of a sequence of lessons. It follows resource 52937 "BIOSCOPES Summer Institute 2013 - Motion" and precedes resource 52910 "BIOSCOPES Summer Institute 2013 - Mechanical Energy." This lesson uses a predict, observe, and explain approach along with inquiry based activities to enhance student understanding of Newton's three laws of motion.

Type: Lesson Plan

Linear Motion:

In this activity students will learn the relationship between:

• Distance and displacement
• Velocity and speed
• Vectors and scalars
• Acceleration

and demonstrate their knowledge through group presentations.

Type: Lesson Plan

Vectors: Tip to Tail:

In this lesson students will learn the characteristics and appropriate use of vectors. They will find the magnitude and direction of vectors, they will add and subtract vectors and use an interactive website to practice what they have learned.
