Product Description
Unit 4 - Energy - Whole Unit includes the following files:

***4.1 Potential & Kinetic Energy Notes***
Covers these two types of energy and how to calculate them. 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.

***4.1 Potential & Kinetic Energy Practice Stations***
This document includes 6 stations with 2 energy calculation questions each. The pages can be stapled to a manila folder and propped up. The answer page goes under the question page for students to check their answers. Have students use whiteboards to answer each question to add a little fun.

***4.1 Roller Coaster Energy Simulation***
This page includes a URL for an interactive computer simulation. The instructions on the page lead students through the simulation, gathering data and answer questions as they do.

***4.1 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint***
Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

***4.1 PowerPoint Notes***
Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

***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.

***4.2 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint***
Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

***4.2 PowerPoint Notes***
Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

***Binder Divider - Unit 4***
This page can be printed and trimmed along the edge slightly to make a helpful binder divider. I find that these dividers for each unit help students stay organized.

***Unit Test - Unit 4***
This test includes matching, calculation, short answer, and multiple choice questions covering the entire unit.

***Recovery Quiz - Unit 4***
This short recovery quiz gives students an opportunity to recover from a poor test score. The quiz includes the most commonly-missed questions from my experience. I have all students take the quiz and give them 1/2 point per question back on their test score up to 100%.
