Title: Plastic Stretch PDF
Url: http://www.materialseducation.org/educators/mated-modules/docs/Plasti...
Creator: Stoebe, Thomas G.
Publisher: Edmonds Community College
Description: This learning activity will be helpful for students learning about plastic deformation. Specifically, the exercise looks at plastic deformation in polyethylene, which is found in plastic sheets, bags and other common items. Students will participate in plastic deformation of a polymer, observe "necking" in the material and its effect on strength and relate the behavior of the sample to crystallization.

This activity would be suitable at any level, from elementary school to college, with each age group gaining different educational benefits. The lesson should take about 5 to 10 minutes of class time, plus time for discussion. This document will serve as a framework for instructors and may be downloaded in PDF format.
