Product Description
Student Internet investigation that further explores the concepts of potential and kinetic energy. The activity utilizes the University of Colorado's website/simulation game and is divided into two parts. Although this is a university website the simulation game works very well with middle to high school students. The first part gives the student a good overview of potential energy and how it can be visualized by manipulating variables associated with skate boarding. Part two investigates kinetic energy with the different forces acting on the skater. Students have fun with this activity as they learn about the various forces and energies associated with them. I use this to review the Matter & Energy Unit V lesson I PowerPoint "Energy & Its Forms." (Most students will finish the activity within one class period but some students may take longer to complete.)

Topics/terms in this activity include:

potential energy
kinetic energy
PE = mgh
KE = 1/2 mv^2
friction
mass
gravity
position
total energy
thermal energy
