Title Spring Simulation - Identifying Variables & Asking Questions
Description This simulation asks the students to identify different variables that affect the stretch of a spring (Hooke's Law) and the period of a bouncing spring. The objective of this lab is not necessarily to learn about springs. Rather, it is to have students work on their questioning skills and then experiment to answer those questions.
