Vectors on the Basketball Court
Bergman, Daniel
Science Teacher, v77 n3 p66-68 Mar 2010
An Idea Bank published in the April/May 2009 issue of "The Science Teacher" describes an experiential physics lesson on vectors and vector addition (Brown 2009). Like its football predecessor, the basketball-based investigation presented in this Idea Bank addresses National Science Education Standards Content B, Physical Science, 9-12 (NRC 1996) and Math Standard GEO 9-12 (NCTM 2000). Through this activity, students partake in a life-size learning experience with measurements and vectors. (Contains 1 figure and 1 online resource.)
