Description:

When one end of a wooden board is placed on a bathroom scale and the other end is suspended on a textbook, students can "walk the plank" and record the weight measurement as their distance from the scale changes. This investigation leads to a real world occurrence of negative slope, examples of which are often hard to find. An activity sheet and full instructions are included.
