Banana Leaf Marble Ramp laboratory four

This term the holiday loss of a Wednesday banana leaf marble ramp demonstration caused me to decide to retain the exercise as a laboratory. This was a chance to try a new experiment in this slot. I had to arrive early in order to collect banana leaves and then re-shower and change for class. Timing was too tight and despite a 6:55 departure from home, 7:27 into the field, 7:45 return, I was five minutes late to class.

The laboratory went moderately well but ultimately was confusing and certainly not discovery oriented. I see no compelling reason to swap out the momentum laboratory which leads naturally to the groups presenting their results.
