Bloom's Levels:  Analyze; Understand

Adopted: 2010

BIG IDEAS

  • I can predict how fast a roller coaster will travel down a hill.

UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

The concepts developed in this standard include the following:

  • Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. Potential energy is the energy due to an object’s position or state.
  • Total energy and momentum are conserved.

ESSENTIALS

In order to meet this standard, it is expected that students will

a)  provide and explain examples of how energy can be converted from potential energy to kinetic energy and the reverse.
