Think of a person in the sports industry. He/she can be an athlete, uniform designer, sports equipment
manufacturer, owner/marketer of a team or sports related product, coach, etc. Develop a set of interview
questions (10 or more, half of which must relate to physics) to ask this person. Interview the person face to
face, on the phone, or through email (or mail) and record his/her answers. Submit the interview questions
and answers in a neat and legible format. If you are interested in completing this extra credit but cannot get
the interview set up or completed before the due date, please see me for an extension.

See me if you finish early on Thursday--you may be able to edit the class Photo Story by working on transitions,
music, arrangement, voice over, etc.

Use newspapers and magazines in the classroom (or from home) to make a visually pleasing paper copy of
your project. You may change the sport and complete a totally new project as well. Display 10 or more
pictures on poster paper. Next to each write a related concept (complete sentence(s) and equation. Include a
descriptive title.

Peruse Science Projects About the Physics of Sports. Choose an experiment you would like to try—here or at
home with supervision. Seek teacher approval. Utilize the scientific method to design and conduct an
experiment related to one you read about in the book. Write a report including a title, hypothesis, materials,
procedure, results (diagram and chart or graph), analysis, and conclusion. This can be in a report or trifold
format (like our scientific method project).
