Product Description
Very short activity in which students are required to calculate the work, power, and efficiency of two ramps and determine which one they would rather install based on their calculations.

Basic background information about each concept as well as all formulas needed are included in the reading that accompanies the problem.

This activity was designed to allow students to TRY this on their own using only the information given in the reading (reading comprehension reinforcement), however it could be used as a homework assignment or a review activity (just give the problem to students without the reading).

The writing prompt at the end requires them to pick a viewpoint and defend their answer with evidence from their calculations and the reading.
