Using Simple Machines to Leverage Learning

by: Sharon Dotger

What would your students say if you told them they could lift you off the ground using a block and a board? Using a simple machine, they’ll find out they can, and they’ll learn about work, energy, and motion in the process! In addition, this integrated lesson gives students the opportunity to investigate variables while practicing measurement skills, using technology, and communicating their ideas. As with the other simple machines, studying levers provides students with an opportunity to apply their developing mathematical skills to problems with real-world application.
