Virtual Exploration of Inclined Plane Forces, Day 2

Unit 6: Forces and Motion
Lesson 8 of 11

Objective: Students will return to a virtual lab investigation, inducing formulas for normal and parallel forces on an inclined plane, after reconsidering some of the strategies and critical choices that must be made.

Big Idea: To be successful in our quest to induce rules about forces on an inclined plane, we review the process, clarify expectations, and provide additional time.
