Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object.
Differentiate! There are two versions of each graph - choose which is best for your students or use both to differentiate within your class.
Calculate kinetic energy for various balls thrown at the same speed and graph mass vs kinetic energy.
Calculate kinetic energy for a student riding a bike at different velocities and graph velocity vs kinetic energy.
