This activity is produced by the Maths Magic project. F=ma in a Helicopter provides examples and ideas for A-level mathematics and physics students investigating what happens to packages hanging below a helicopter. The lesson plan describes an active lesson designed to promote discussion about what happens when the helicopter is accelerating, moving with constant velocity and decelerating, leading to students modelling the situation mathematically. The teaching notes include teaching tips and how the resources could be adapted.
