Day 19: Starting CAPM


Today we started ##CAPM. I took Kelly O’Shea’s idea of starting with a ramp in front of the class for the standard drop of a cart on a ramp, then we discussed the aspects of the situation that we could change to investigate further. Students came up with ramp angle, mass (a later experiment, I said), detector location (at bottom instead of top), push cart down, push cart up. Then I set them loose and they investigated for the rest of the hour, to be discussed and analyzed tomorrow.
