Simple Machines - Physical Science - grades 11-12

If I asked you what you thought the first machine was, what would you say? For most people when they hear the word machine they think of a contraption with many gears and other moving parts, however the first machines were much simpler than that. The definition of a simple machine is something that changes the direction or amount of force being applied to an object. These can include Levers just like a seesaw or a Wedge/Inclined Plane represented by the slide, both of which can be found in a school playground. Upon completion of this pathway, you will learn about the six types of Simple Machines and understand how they work.
