|Title||Conservation of Energy 2 Energy Skate Park relating graphs position and speed (Inquiry Based)|
|Description||This is an inquiry lesson that is the second in a series using the Energy Skate Park simulation. Learning Goals: Students will be able to: 1.Describe Energy -Pie, -Bar, and -Position Charts from position or selected speeds. a.Explain how changing the Skater affects the situations above. b.Explain how changing the surface friction affects the situations above. 2.Predict position or estimate of speed from Energy -Pie, -Bar, and -Position Charts 3.Look at the position of an object and use the Energy -Pie, -Bar, and -Position charts to predict direction of travel or change in speed.|
