Students learn about inclined planes

New School Montessori students in 4th, 5th and 6th grade studied inclined planes with teacher Nancy Buchman. An inclined plane is inclined at an angle to the horizontal. That angle of incline can be measured and loads or weights can be recorded and pulled up the incline with a measurable force. One can also note how the angle of the incline and friction play a part in the forces required to transport items up or down an incline.
