|Title||Pendulum Lab 1: intro to pendulums (Inquiry Based)|
|Description||This is an inquiry based lesson to help students understand basic pendulum relationships. It could be used as a homework or in-class activity. Learning Goals: Students will be able to: Design experiments to describe how variables (length, mass, angle and gravity field)affect the motion of a pendulum. Use a photogate timer to determine quantitatively how the period of a pendulum depends on the variables. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a teacher and would like a solution key.|
