Materials - Go!Motion sensor, Fathom, Logger Lite (if using VCL), five cars, two computers

DESCRIPTION: In this activity students, working in small groups, will conduct an experiment in which they formulate conjectures to determine which variables influence the velocity and total distance traveled of a car rolling down a ramp. They will test their conjectures by conducting a lab using Fathom and motion detectors and matchbox cars
