An Experiment To Give Physical Meaning to the Mathematical Concept of Slope.
Newburgh, Ronald
Physics Education, v36 n4 p316-19 Jul 2001
Presents a simple experiment that allows students to determine a slope from a series of measurements rather than from a given equation in which students measure heights and widths for a set of paper rectangles, all with the same width. Students calculate areas and plot area versus height from the data. (Author/ASK)
