Description: In this lesson from Math Machines, students will learn about the effects of magnetic fields on moving, electrically charged particles.
The activity consists of two exercises. The first involves analyzing how a robot is controlled in a magnetic field. The second has students design and test a "magnetic bottle."
A participant handout (including worksheets) and facilitator notes are made available for download in DOC file format. A link to a required calculator program is also provided.
