May the Force be with us!

Today was day two of running our Knex cars while investigating different forces. Yesterday we talked about how gravity pulled the car from one end of the table to the other. The more weight, the more force, the faster the car moved.
Today we added a “load” to the car. We kept the same amount of force (gravity) to pull the car but changed the mass of the “load”. We created a line plot to show the progression of time it took the car to move.
Aahh, math and science together! Awesome pair!
