Description:

In this lesson,students participate in activities in which they focus on patterns and relations that can be developed from the exploration of balance, mass, length of the mass arm, and the position of the fulcrum. Given a ruler placed on a large crayon, two small paper cups, and paper clips, students try to locate the center of balance of the ruler. After finding various positions for balancing the ruler, students discuss in class the patterns and relations found.
