Students use will use a free interactive simulation program from the PHET website that allows students to manipulate skate ramps to observe how kinetic and potential energy apply to position.
-conservation on energy
Explain the Conservation of Energy concept using kinetic energy (KE) and gravitational potential energy (PE).
Describe how the Energy Bar and Pie Charts relate to position.
Compare KE and PE at one position from information about a different position.
Design a skate park using the concepts of mechanical energy and energy conservation.
