Personalize the learning experience
• Teacher tool allows
customization and building
of activities
• Learning differentiation
through activity questions
and hints
• Advanced options allow
teachers to create nuanced
experiments
Question 1
How does a ball’s mass affect the speed of
a falling ball?
•Create an experiment with balls of different mass, roll them
down ramps and measure the velocity of the ball at a common
point.
Question 2
Does the shape of the ramp or a straight
drop make a difference in the momentum?
•Create an experiment comparing the velocity of a single ball
when rolling down different ramps or falling straight down.
Question 3
How can you explain the different results?
•Document in your lab book the differences in your
measurements and hypothesize as to why they differ?
