- This is a PBL project that had students design and present to a panel of local experts a set of possible rides for a proposed amusement park as a way for them to master and apply the concepts of rotational motion. It was specifically designed to help students increase their depth of knowledge of angular kinematics, force, energy, and momentum. The project required students to design and then describe in detail one or more amusement park rides that would be the basis of authentically demonstrating their depth of knowledge for these topics. Note that the project was designed and delivered per the North Carolina honors Physics curriculum and it can be customized to meet your own specific curriculum needs and resources.
