CMS students calculate speed

Campbellsville Middle School seventh-graders are studying speed.

 

In Steven Gumm’s science class, students are learning the relationship between time and distance, and how to calculate the speed of an object.

 

As an experiment, students used cars to test their theories.

 

Students set up a ramp with a block of wood and books.

 

First, students released a car from the top of the incline and recorded the time it took to reach the end of the board.

 

Students then tried the trials with a different car, and then two cars together, and a different inclines.

 

When finished, students calculated the average speeds of their cars.
