Students can use the Flow Ring to develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.
Students can use the Flow Ring to plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on an object's motion.
Students can use the Flow Ring to plan and conduct an investigation to analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
Students can use the Flow Ring to plan and conduct an investigation to determine the effects of placing objects made with different materials into the path of a beam of light.
Using the Flow Ring, students can plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on an object's motion.
Using the Flow Ring, students can make observations and/or take measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
Students can use the Flow Ring to plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and its mass.
Students can use the Flow Ring and a bright beam of light to plan an investigation to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials.
Using the Flow Ring, students can investigate and analyze data to support the claim that Newton's Second Law of Motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
Construct a loop using one meter of garden hose and a connector. Open the loop and place the Flow Ring in the ring. Reattach the connector. With a hand-over-hand motion, allow the coil to rotate as you move the loop in a circular motion. Vary the speed to allow for observations.
