Java Logo Original Sim and Translations

Topics

  • Conservation of Energy
  • Kinetic Energy
  • Potential Energy
  • Thermal Energy
  • Energy
  • Friction

Description

Learn about conservation of energy with a skater gal! Explore different tracks and view the kinetic energy, potential energy and friction as she moves. Build your own tracks, ramps, and jumps for the skater.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Explain the Conservation of Mechanical Energy concept using kinetic energy (KE) and gravitational potential energy (PE).
  • Describe how the Energy Bar and Pie Charts relate to position and speed.
  • Explain how changing the Skater Mass affects energy.
  • Explain how changing the Track Friction affects energy.
  • Predict position or estimate speed from Energy Bar and Pie Charts.
  • Calculate speed or height at one position from information about a different position.
  • Calculate KE and PE at one position from information about a different position.
  • Design a skate park using the concepts of mechanical energy and energy conservation.
