Poster Set 2 - Friction Investigation
Transcript of Poster Set 2 - Friction Investigation
• Student examples
If additional zooming is required, hover the mouse over the right side of the screen and a zoom tool will appear. The scroll function may also be used for this purpose. The lesson provided here is an example only. It is not meant to be followed step-by-step, but used as a framework for teachers to guide their students through the inquiry process. It is not designed for any specific grade level, and can be used successfully and appropriately at many levels. Teachers should use their professional judgment to decide what is suitable according to the strengths, needs and interests of their students. Legend:
The following symbols appear throughout the prezi. Clicking on an object will allow you to zoom in and read the information contained there. Main idea: This provides a brief outline of the investigation.
Materials: equipment needed, other
resources (books, videos, etc)
General Information: This will guide
teachers through the process of using
the Steps To Inquiry posters. It is the
same for all lessons using a particular
poster set. Specific Information: This provides
information on the specific activity
that is being outlined, including student samples.

Safety Notes The observed behaviours from Step 1 become possible dependent variables in Step 2a. Sticky notes are moved from the "Observe" section of Step 1 and may need to be re-worded in terms of measurability for Step 2a. Cultivating Keen Observers pdf

http://alturl.com/yy7cp Sticky notes developed from the "Wonder" section of Step 1 (and determined as testable in the question sort) are moved to Step 2b. (These may also need to be re-worded) This investigation is based on the friction ramps in the Weston Innovation Centre at the Ontario Science Centre. Students investigate factors that affect how well an object travels down an inclined plane. Students explore sending a few of the available objects down the different ramps. They make observations as to how well they travel (do they go all the way to the bottom; how long does it take to get to the bottom; how long does it take to get started, etc. ramps
