LESSON 5. Variable Based Triangle
Objective: Collecting data using a variable-based triangle.
If you have building sets like Lego or Meccano you may want to substitute or add to this lab. Students need to “engineer” design and the only way they can do that is through models. There are many other “toys” on the market that incorporate building techniques that could easily be used.
The second part of the exercise is for the students to design a product. Let them use rulers, protractors, and the Angle/Linear Ruler.
The angles are written below. Use as a guideline. Notice that between 22 cm and 10 cm, there is a set angle change… but not before or after
