This package of learning activities contains PowerPoints with their associated completion notes, quizzes and tests, worksheets and a Power Lab activity. Some of the topics addressed with these activities include forces in fluids, Archimede's Principle, Bernoulli's Principle, Work, Power, and Simple Machines. The zip file with these activities contains 33 pages of student handouts. Answer keys for these items are included which are not included in the page count for these activities. The specific contents includes:
-- Fluids in Forces PowerPoint (16 slides) and associated 4 page completion notes handout.
-- Work, Power and Simple Machines PowerPoint (33 slides) and associated 11 page completion note handout
-- Marzano self assessment scales for Forces in Fluids and Work, Power and Simple Machines with learning goals (4 pages)
-- Forces in Fluids Student Practice Test with key (may be used as a homework assignment) (3 pages)
-- Work, Power, and Simple Machines worksheet with key (2 pages)
-- Work and Power Lab Activity with key (3 pages)
-- Work, Power and Simple Machines Test with key (7 pages)
-- Work, Power and Simple Machines Practice test for students with answers (may be used as a homework assignment) (5 pages)
The Work and Power lab activity introduces the concepts of work and power to physical science students. It involves some simple calculations and thought problems involving work, potential energy and power following a physical activity in lab by the students. The only special materials required are stairs, bleachers or risers. The answer key is included following the three page student lab.
The materials are in a zip file and contain files in both word and pdf format with the exception of the PowerPoints and the Work and Power Lab activity (the student handout and key are both included in a pdf file).
