Physical Science: Levers and Pulleys

Levers and Pulleys
Vendor:  FOSS
#4

Humans are the only living creatures that have been able to put materials together to construct machines to do work.  Understanding simple machines, and what they reveal about the relationship between effort and the work produced is essential to understanding complex ones.  Students will grasp that idea through the activities of this module, which encourage them to create and operate two simple labor savers: levers and pulleys.
