Title Ramp Activity 1: Using free body diagrams for motion on an incline (Inquiry Based)
Description There was simulation called “The Ramp”, but our research showed that it had too many learning goals. The first tab of the sim is simplified and energy parts of the sim have been deleted as well. There are plans to design and produce an “Energy and Work” simulation. The old version of the sim is still available until the new sim is produced. These lessons work with either version.
