The study of Simple Harmonic Motion (SHM) in physical science, physics and mathematics classes provides a fertile ground for interdisciplinary study as students are provided the opportunity to connect the law of conservation of energy with basic trigonometric functions and wave theory. This workshop will provide participants with relevant, hands-on experience using oscillators such as the CPO Simple Pendulum and Springs and Swings equipment modules used to introduce this critical and often misunderstood set of concepts to students. Several examples will emphasize practical application bridging math and science principals at both the middle and upper school levels. Sample investigations will be provided to each workshop participant.
