How It Works

The Smart Cart Demonstration kit includes instructions for physics demos. Each demonstration is broken into sections as follows:

  • Overview – This is a brief description of the demonstration, and the concepts covered.
  • Equipment List – includes the items used from the Smart Cart Demonstration Kit as well as any other equipment required.
  • Teacher Tips – Suggestions to help make the demonstration a success.

It is recommended that you copy and paste these questions into presentation slides to show during the demonstration. Most of the questions are in multiple choice form so they can be used with clicker response systems.
