About this product
The Roller Coaster Physics set is designed to help students as they design and conduct scientific investigations, identify variables of the problem and adapt models to improve performance. It encourages data collection, charting and reporting of experimental results.
This 2037 k'nex piece set builds 11 different roller coaster designs including a large roller coaster with clothoid loop, half pipe with circular loops, inclines planes and ball ramps.
The set allows up to 6-8 student to work together and comes with student instruction booklet, teacher guide and lesson plans. The teacher's guide offers ideas, in the form of nine lab exercises, that outline ways in which students in grades 11 and 12 may use the set to study physics, and in particular mechanics. The studies adopt a hands-on, student-inquiry based approach in which the teacher is encouraged to develop each lab investigation using the 5e model (engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate) of inquiry while students utilize the four question strategy for experiment design.
Key concepts covered include measurement in 3d, trigonometry, time of flight, uniform acceleration elastic collision in 2 dimensions, centripetal force and acceleration, centripetal force in a vertical direction weightiness and weightlessness, the physics of the clothoid loop.
It helps in the teaching of data collection, charting and reporting experiment results. The set builds two lab stations.
Stem education focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts taught through problem-solving, discovery, exploratory learning and critical thinking. Stem education requires students to be active participants in the learning. K'nex® models offer hands-on learning opportunities that encourage scientific inquiry, investigation and experimentation.
