TP Lab  Work with your group to develop a mathematical model to predict the mass of a toilet paper roll based on the length of the paper pulled from it. 
C.O.F LAB  Work with your group to see how PRECISELY you can measure the coefficient of friction between various materials 
Rosedale Vehicle Acceleration  Work with your group to develop a lab that centers on the degree to which cars accelerate AWAY from the stop light on Rossedale right out in front of our school 
Work with your group to design a design and conduct an investigation to answer the unit question: Why does an air bag keep us safe in an auto collision?  
Air Friction  Work with your group to design and conduct an investigation to determine a relationship between a particular physical property (volume, density, surface area or mass) and air friction. Notes from class are HERE 
Hooke's Law  Work with your group to calculate an experimental value for Hooke's Law. 
EQ Model  Work with your group to design and construct building models on a 'shake table' to see how accurately you can model a 9.0 earthquake and its effects on the Puget Sound region. 
Optics  Work with your group to compare the speed of light in various types of soda pop
