1-D Kinematics: Describing Motion with Words
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this unit students will learn how to analyze the motion of objects. Students will begin to make a mathematical connection with words that describe motion. This unit will focus on several examples of vector and scalar quantities (distance, displacement, speed, velocity, and acceleration). As students proceed through the lessons, they should give careful attention to the vector and scalar nature of each quantity. This tutorial also includes animations of each of the major concepts. At the end of each lesson students can check for understanding of concepts by answering concept questions.

Adjusting Your Water Heater to Conserve Energy
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this lab activity, students will accomplish two sequential goals. The first goal is to understand the law of conservation of energy through an activity where students mix cold and warm water with predetermined volumes and temperatures. THe second goal is to use their knowledge in part one to determine the temperature of hot water with a known volume and an unknown temperature that has been mixed with cold water with known temperature and volume.
