Directions:

What ramp causes objects to move the farthest? In order to find out, test each ramp by rolling an object down it. Measure the distance the object traveled off of the ramp, and record it in the table below.


As you see, you have to test each ramp three times. You wouldn’t want to decide which one was best after only one try!
