Master Teacher lessons

Big Idea:
Students ask questions about a roller coaster project.

Big Idea:
Today, students learn what it really means to "work" in physics.

Big Idea:
Students build a roller coaster that demonstrates conservation of energy.

Big Idea:
Students explore the relationship between Work and Kinetic Energy.

Big Idea:
Energy is the "currency" of work., but a single model for energy does not (yet) exist.

Big Idea:
Students use work to help them solve for power.

Big Idea:
Work is done when an object is displaced in the same direction a force is applied.

Big Idea:
Work can be calculated as the product of force and distance.

Big Idea:
Students show what they know individually about work, power and energy through a test.
