Its gate features an input port, so multi- ple gates can be con- nected in a daisy-chain configuration with up to four gates going to a single interface channel. The Vernier Photogate also sup- ports auto-ID with compatible software. Use the unit to study free fall, air track collisions, pendulum periods, the speed of a rolling object, and much more.

The Optics WLS-1751-62 Expansion Kit includes three lens holders with bases (100mm, 200mm, -150mm); screen, holder, and base; combi- nation luminous and point light source; light sensor holder; aperture screen; and power supply. WLS-1807-76 Motion Detector Study the motion of a person walking, a ball in free fall, a cart on a ramp, and much more. Using ultrasound to meas- ure distance, the motion detector emits pulses, which are reflected from a target, and then detected by the device. The time it takes for the reflected pulses to return is then used to calculate position, velocity, and acceleration. The detector can measure objects within a range of 15 cm to 6 m. The short minimum target distance allows objects to be closer to the detector and reduces stray reflections. A spe- cial track mode also tailors the sensitivity for dynamics carts on tracks for lower noise and higher quality data. The device attaches easily to the Vernier Dynamics track and has a piv- oting head and rubber feet for ease of use when used with- out the track.

Everything you need to complete the demonstration is provided and the entire experiment is performed in a heavy-duty plastic, zipper-lock bag so your students can feel and study the reaction closely, but safely. After observing the demonstration, students are motivated to continue explorations of the concepts observed. Explain the science and then let students expand and further their understanding by asking questions and proposing predic- tions and hypothesis. Their questions and hypothesis determine the direction of the lesson — ask students how you might test the parameters they suggest. Increase the students’ understanding by repeating the demonstration using their recommendations. Each kit contains enough material to repeat the demonstration about 20 times.

Bags containing a mole of several elements and compounds are available to examine, weigh, and explore. Use the mini bags to demonstrate fractions of a mole, then bring the bags out again to demonstrate the relationship between moles and molar solutions. This is a great teaching aid for intro- ducing moles, Avogadro’s number, gram molecular weight, and molarity. WLC94003-30

Then you can use these measurements to parent (8 1⁄2") motion wheel. These investigations provide first- make powerful predictions about the weather in your hand observations of Earth’s motion. Extension activities also area. This barometer operates without liquid, but uses a allow you to use the device to explore Earth’s heat transfer thin metal diaphragm mechanism to measure the effect of cycles; including radiation, conduction, and convection currents atmospheric pressure. The unit is circular, constructed of two identical convoluted and their impact on both air and ocean circulation, and the diaphragms sealed at their edges. When this capsule is completely evacuated of movement of magma deep beneath the Earth’s crust. The air, it will respond to pressure changes in the atmosphere. Such changes propor- demonstrator includes one Plexiglas wheel, two super magnets, tionally affect the changes in the thickness of the capsule, which are magnified clear tubing, bumper pads, steel balls, and a variety of clips and through levers, finally causing a needle to rotate over a circular scale divided into connectors, along with a detailed teacher’s guide, and set of equivalent inches of mercury and millibars. This action observed on the Barometer activity transparencies. Tutor gives students full understanding of barometric pressure. Size: 8" diameter. WL1805-97 WL1805-98
