Expanding a School Laboratory Experiment into a Science Project

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?

:

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 distPance 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.

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?
