Simple and Complex Machines

Simple and Complex Machines


Using some animation and a droll story-line, the site attempts to teach students about simple machines such as "Wedge and Lever," "Ramp and Pulley," and "Wheel and Axle." Teachers may want to first visit the "Teachers' Overview" section for teaching tips, standards, etc. Note that the site's 'hit counter' dates back to 2003.
