Rates & Non-Contact Force
Students have the opportunity to experiment with two non-contact forces; gravity and magnetism. Students will learn about gravity, magnetism as well as magnetic and non-magnetic influences. Challenge students to identify which non-contact force is at play and why the magnet acts the way it does.
Grade 6 Mathematics
Learning outcome: Students apply equivalence to the interpretation of ratios and rates.
Skills and procedures: Express a unit rate to represent a given rate, including unit price and speed.
Grade 8 Mathematics
GLO: Develop number sense.
SLO: Solve problems that involve rates, ratios and proportional reasoning.
