Product Description

The K'NEX Education Roller Coaster Physics Set is designed to help students as they learn how to design and conduct scientific investigations, identify variables of the problem and select appropriate independent and dependent variables for investigations. They will determine the steps necessary to control a variable, observe and record the response, and interpret the results. They will measure, record, and analyze the data for patterns, construct scatter plots or histograms as a graphic representation of the data, and mathematically interpret those graphs The Teacher's Guide offers ideas, in the form of nine lab exercises, that outline ways in which students in grades 11 and 12 may use the set to study physics, and in particular mechanics. The studies adopt a hands-on, student-inquiry based approach in which the teacher is encouraged to develop each lab investigation using the 5E model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, and Evaluate) of inquiry while students utilize the Four Question Strategy for experiment design. Set includes 2039 K'NEX parts - enough to build 11 roller coasters, inclined planes, and loop systems using K'NEX! Supports 6 - 8 students working in teams. Grades 11 - 12. Building instructions comprehensive teacher's guide aligned to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Standards included.

Roller Coaster Physics.

By MDawson

from Undisclosed

Comments about K'NEX Education - Roller Coaster Physics:

I use this in my physics class. It is great for both physics calculations and solving engineering type questions. The students are excited to design their coasters and then do several calculations on the final coaster. It is a great STEM project.

Great kit!

Comments about K'NEX Education - Roller Coaster Physics:

We have this set at our school library, and our students love it.  They have so much fun building these models, they don't even realize that they're learning.  Once the roller coaster is finished, we're keeping it up on display so all our students can see it.

Terrific Physics Examples

By pohjola

from Alexandria, VA

Comments about K'NEX Education - Roller Coaster Physics:

I use this in both physics and engineering classes (9-12) and you can use it for both building and collecting data to use in all levels of calculations. From easy energy conservation calculations to complex g-force problems, this kit will allow you to have fun with physics/engineering.
