Lesson 3

In Lesson 3:Part 1, students use a goniometer to find the range of motion of their own knee and of the injured knee model. In this lesson, students will calculate the difference between these range of motion measurements.

Lesson 4

Students will investigate the ways that form and function impact one another using the example of footwear. They will design a new type of shoe that meets the unique needs of a wacky new sport.

Lesson 2

In Lesson 2, students created an outline of their foot and measured their arches. As an extension of that activity, this lesson will allow students to explore different measuring tools to measure the length of their foot outlines.

Extension Lesson

Lesson 2

Students will “capture” their footprints while walking/running at different speeds and analyze their properties.

Lesson 3

In this lesson, students will classify their range of motion results for Tests A and B as either acute, obtuse, or right angles.

Lesson 4

After creating their first successful knee brace designs, students are given a cost sheet for the different materials available to them. They attempt to redesign their knee braces so that they cost less, but are still effective.

Lesson 2

Students will find the area of their footprint using graph paper.

Extension Lesson
The EIE Curriculum
Lesson 4

Students survey their classmates and tabulate how many groups utilized each material in the knee brace designs. They create a bar graph of their data and draw conclusions from their results.
