Students can use the Hovercraft to plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
Students can use the Hovercraft to make observations and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
Students can the use the Hovercraft to develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
Students can the use the Hovercraft to make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.
Students can use the Hovercraft to develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion.
Students can use the Hovercraft 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 the mass of the object.
Students can use the Hovercraft to 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.
Students can use the Hovercraft Class Kit in a number of investigations on states of matter, air friction, and air pressure. Newton's Laws of Motion become tangible when using the Hovercraft. First Law (inertia, momentum, Second Law (force equals Mass time acceleration and Third Law (action-Reaction) can be demonstrated and investigated when using two or more of the Hovercraft. Adding variables in surface materials, weight to the Hovercraft and collisions allow students to explore.
