Interactive review of the Introductory Physics Unit V "Energy and Heat" zip file folder. The program reviews energy and its forms; energy conversion and conservation; energy resources; thermal energy and matter; heat and thermodynamics. Questions include 20 true/false; multiple choice and text entries/responses. A printable PDF file can be generated from the program that can also be used as a worksheet or as an informal assessment.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and at least two links to short videos to further student understanding. PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject. A class activity is included at the end of each lesson.
* All PowerPoint lessons; ActivInspire programs; student note sheets/activities and assessments for this unit can be found under the "Introductory Physics Complete Unit V Energy and Heat" zip file folder.
