Today you will be using interactive multimedia software to further explore Work and Energy. I will also give you some time at the end of class to work on your Project. You should create a schedule, make assignments to teams, and come up with the plan on how you will proceed with the online physics resource project.
Instructions for today's assignment:
Log in and go to
. Multimedia Science School
Select the following:
Work and Energy
As you go through the lesson, make sure you pay attention to each part of the lesson and take notes. Write down any questions (and answers) and information from each page in your notes that you think is helpful for future reference. Do not write everything down though. This is for you for future study and reference.
Try each simulation multiple times with different variables so you can truly see what is happening.
As you work through the lessons, perform the calculations for yourselves before selecting the final row in the ‘Calculate work’ table, to check your answers.
