Grades 9-12: This lab provides students with an introduction to the fascinating ideas about chaos theory while tying it closely to concepts taught at the Regents Physics level.
PHYSICAL SCIENCES (Grades 9-12)
Of all physical phenomena, the simple pendulum is perhaps the best suited to introduce students to the concept that the natural world can be described in a mathematical language and provides an entry point into conceptual, analytic and experimental techniques. The double pendulum is a system that behaves exactly like the simple pendulum for small amplitudes but is chaotic for larger amplitudes, providing students with an introduction to the fascinating ideas about chaos theory while tying it closely to concepts and techniques taught at the Regents Physics level.
