For this assignment, you are going to study motion by looking at the physics of roller coasters.
First you need to learn a little about how roller coasters work. Go to at least 2 sites. Write a paragraph about one to share with your classmates.
Next go to Amusement Park Physics and design a roller coaster. You need to design a fun but safe roller coaster. Keep track of your designs and any comments on why they may or may not work.
Questions -- Either write out your answers or type them into a word processor.
How many coasters did you have to build before you got 2 thumbs up?
