Math 1 Students Learn about Rollercoaster Physics

On April 1, 2019 Mr. Taylor's Math 1 students visited Disney's California Adventure for an in depth study on rollercoaster physics, Newton's Laws of motion and conservation of energy. The program includes theoretical consideration of the forces involved, practical construction of a looping model as well as riding them for themselves. Following the program, the kids enjoyed the rest of the day exploring the park attractions.
