Here are some
examples of School Laboratory activities that can be expanded into a science project.
The following experiments are all from our integrated Math and Science Activity
Center. ll these experiments are centered on the central theme-- Applications
to Mathematical Relationships

**Lab 1: The
Spring Constant: **

__Problem__: What is the relationship between how much a
spring stretches and the force pulling on the spring?

**Lab 2: The Pendulum:**

__Problem__:
What is the relationship between the period of a pendulum and the length of the
string of the pendulum?

**Lab 3: Mass, Volume and
Density**:

__Problem__:
What is the relationship between the mass of a ball and its volume assuming a
constant density?

**Lab 3: Density of a Liquid**:

__Problem__:
What is the relationship between the volume of a liquid and its density.

**Lab 4: Light Intensity:**

__Problem__:
What is the relationship between the intensity of a beam of light and the dist__P__ance
from a light source?

**Lab 5: Acceleration:**

__Problem:__
What is a the relationship between how the distance travels and the time in travel
for an accelerating object?

**Lab 6: Polarization:**

__Problem:__ What is the relationship between how much light
passes through a Polaroid filter and the angle the filter is rotated?

**Lab 7: Ohms
Law : **

__Problem:__ What is the relationship between current, voltage
when there is a constant resistance in an electric circuit.

**Lab 8: Radioactive
Decay:**

__Problem:__
What is the relationship between the decay of radioactive material and the time
allowed for the decay?

**Lab 9: Water
Pressure:**

__Problem:
__What is the relationship between water pressure and depth of water?

** Lab
10: Attractive and Repulsive Forces:**

__Problem:
__What is the relationship between the distance between two magnets and the force between them?

** Lab
11: Damping Motion:**

__Problem:
__What is the relationship between the height a ball bounces and the number
of times it has bounced?
