Good equipment

Overall rating:

This kit contains excellent materials for the exploration of forces and motion. The written materials, however, are abysmal and I find that I will need to write my own procedures and questions for the student. The student activity sheets do not contain procedures, have students make any hypothesis or identify any variables in the activity. This kit was given to me, and I appreciate it, but without a better teacher guide and student handouts, it is not worth the purchase price.:
