Playground Equipment

Ann Hanson, Peter Insley

Abstract


In this paper, the authors analyze the math and science in a common piece of playground equipment, a swing. The authors derive the equations needed to describe the motion of a swing. Next, they perform an actual experiment with a real swing and then give teachers some suggestions on how to use this activity in their classroom.
