In this warmup, students evaluate what would happen to a series of balls stacked on top of each other from a particular height. This is intended to be used in a unit that focuses on: potential versus kinetic energy. This could also be used in a unit involving collisions. Students will need to have been introduced to, and be able to evaluate the term 'inertia.'
If interested, this warmup comes with a companion lesson and series of video. For more information, go to STEAM Punks to learn more.
