Pseudo Day 121 – Pressure

20150513_142058

Science 8 – May 13

I used math cubes to model the concept of pressure. The idea is that the height of the cube stack represents pressure.  The number of cubes is the force, and the number of cubes touching the desk surface is the area.  Stacks have to be even in height.  Using groups of 12 cubes gives several different configurations. I highly recommend this activity for introducing pressure!
