Lesson 4.2 - Conservation of Energy includes the following files:
***4.2 Conservation of Energy Notes***
Covers the idea that energy in a system is conserved but that it can transform into other types of energy. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.
***4.2 Energy Skate Park Simulation***
This page includes a URL for an interactive computer simulation where we observe a person's energy as the skateboard on a half-pipe. The instructions on the page lead students through the simulation, gathering data and answering questions as they do.
***4.2 Conservation of Energy Example***
This quick half-sheet activity asks students to use a computer to search for an example of conservation of energy. They then draw a picture and write an explanation.
***4.2 Conservation of Energy Lab***
Students answer the question "What effect does increasing a cart's mass have on the percentage of energy dissipated as it travels down a ramp?" by loading masses onto a cart, measuring its velocity and starting height, and calculating potential energy and kinetic energy. This lab follows the scientific method as taught in Lesson 1.3.
