Investigating Gravitational Interactions

We've collaborated with PocketLab to allow users to upload Notebook files. Notebooks allow you to integrate live copies of a sim into an activity!

Titel Investigating Gravitational Interactions
Beschreibung This lesson uses PocketLab Notebook software to deliver lessons to students with the simulation embedded. Students will be able to: Model gravity and planetary orbits with the analogy of a two dimensional sheet of fabric warped by weights or balls to represent the effect of mass and gravity in space . Gather qualitative data that gravitational forces depend on the mass of the objects and are always attractive. Compare modelled orbit to a simulated orbit using PhET. Construct and Present Arguments around the affect of mass on gravitational forces using evidence from the models.
