Students practice calculating kinetic and potential energy in a clear, organized way. I emphasize the four step method for solving basic physics problems at this introductory level:
1. Identifying Known Information
2. Selecting the Appropriate Formula
3. Substituting Known Values into the Equation
4. Reporting the Correct Answer, with Units.
Includes background information, formulas, units, summary of four step method, sample problem, and opportunity for short writing exercise to demonstrate understanding of concepts beyond numbers. Visually pleasing, too!
