Semester 2 – Day 57

Today was the popper challenge. I gave students poppers and had them do this simple calculation as a way of introducing spring constants. 

First I began the day by showing them two springs with different weights hanging from them. Next we related k, simply to the qualitative idea of “spring strength”

Then they did the challenge problem.
