STEM in the Fast Lane 6 NEW Lessons and Activities created by the 6-12 educators at the MathScience Innovation Center Presented by: Beth Layne

2
Project Partners: Arena Racing USA Henrico County Public Schools MathScience Innovation Center Richmond International Raceway Virginia Commonwealth University Activities tested in the field with participants of all ages.

3
Start Your Engines Students will conduct an experiment, and create box-and-whisker plots to examine the role of reaction times in automobile racing. Math 8, Algebra I General Science

4
Shape UP Students will investigate various shaped cars, and race them to determine how the shape of a car body can be manipulated in order to minimize air resistance. Math 6-8 Physical Science

5
Bank on It Students will research race track data in order to create a scatterplot that examines the relationship between speed and degree of track banking. Math 6-8, Algebra I, Geometry General Science, Physics

6
Facts on Friction Students will investigate different tire compositions. Probeware will be used to determine the force of friction for two different tire compounds and a simulated racetrack. The amount of the static and kinetic friction, as well as the percent of change between these forces, will be analyzed to see which compound would be more appropriate for NASCAR racing. Math 8, Pre-Algebra Physical Science

7
Forces in Racing Students will investigate types of forces in auto racing. Formulas are derived and Centripetal Force is explored through experimentation. Math 6-8, Algebra I Physical Science

8
Building to Scale Students will work with proportions to create a scale model of a racecar. Math 6-8, Geometry General Science

9
STEM Education Series Richmond Coliseum – Arena Racing USA

10
HCPS STEM Education Day Richmond International Raceway
