In this interactive from APT, help a group of friends figure out why loading one person’s all-terrain vehicle into her truck at the end of a fun day of riding was easier for her than for the others. In the accompanying classroom activity, students use the interactive to calculate the slope of each friend’s inclined planes, recommend which one the friends should use to load the trucks, and explain their answers based on mathematical data.
