Day 28: Interactive Demo with LabQuest 2 and iPads

Today I tried something new for the activity to model the relationship between mass and weight. We didn’t have time; so, instead of having groups perform the experiment, I led the class through it. To make it more engaging, I used a LabQuest 2 from Vernier to gather the data. I then shared the data over an ad-hoc wireless network to iPads distributed to each student. This allowed the students to see the data as it was collected and to perform the analysis on their own. The whole process will work better once the LabQuest 2 is configured on the network, but I was pleased that the LabQuest 2 could handle a room full of iPads and with the overall efficiency of the process.
