Students used textbook covers and tape to construct roller
coasters for marbles. The roller coasters had to have at least
one hill and one turn.

                  Used in the Lab




The six sturdiest roller coasters were used in a lab. Students
measured time, distance, and displacement. Then they
calculated speed and velocity. Finally, students were asked to
explain their results and draw conclusions about the relationship
between distance, displacement, speed, and velocity.
