Discovery School: Roller Coaster Physics

If your students get loopy over roller coasters, they’ll be psyched for Roller Coaster Physics. It uncovers not only how friction, potential energy, gravity, and acceleration combine to create thrill rides but also how the g-forces of roller coasters affect the human body to make us love – or dread – them.

Includes a teacher’s guide with discussion questions, a lesson plan, and vocabulary. Includes addressed national science standards.
