Grades 5-8 Performance Task

Contributed by: Kentucky Department of Education (KDE)

Students test the force necessary to start each of two blocks in motion on an asphalt strip. They repeat their tests with weight on the blocks, and with three different asphalt strips: one dry, one wet, and one oily. Individually, they graph the group's data, and apply the data to several different applications.
