        What Is an Inclined Plane?

        This interactive lesson from APT invites students to explore the mathematical concepts of slope, force, work, and inclined planes. Students learn that the work a person does equals the effort — the force exerted — multiplied by the distance over which the effort is maintained. They also recognize that what is gained in applying less effort is paid in distance, and vice versa. In the accompanying classroom activity, students work with real-world examples of force and inverse relationships.
