Mini-lab activities have been designed for use by students with limited background in mathematics, and give students an option of using either an equation or a graphical approach. Basic familiarity with high school math, including simple trigonometry, is required for some. Some would be appropriate as homework assignments, while others are designed to be done as group activities in class. Some make use of online resources from other sites. Their continued availability is not guaranteed!
Sources for images, data, and activities are gratefully acknowledged in the individual files. All files are in Word format to allow easy editing to adapt the mini-labs to your classroom situation.
