|Marie C. Smith, Anthony Overton Elementary School|
|A lesson designed to teach students to observe the flight of a glider; measure the distance flown from a given point; analyze the effect of a change of angle of inclination on the launch/flight of sling-launched gliders; collect data on distance flown when a glider is launched from two different angle-ramps; and record and communicate test results to the class by use of a horizontal bar chart. From the Practical and Applied Math section of a collection of almost 200 single concept lessons by the Science and Mathematics Initiative for Learning Enhancement.|
