Firework Show, Kaitlin A. Ordiway, Miranda Wharram, Steven Lauffer Jun 2015

#### Firework Show, Kaitlin A. Ordiway, Miranda Wharram, Steven Lauffer

##### Lesson Plans

Our model allows student to create a firework show in order to distract zombies long enough to get food and get back to their home base. Students will use their knowledge of emission, light and energy to determine the best firework show possible.

#### Using Interactive Physics To Explore Conservation Of Energy, Fayne Winter

##### Lesson Plans

Students will gain experience in critically looking at graphs and peripheral information in order to read and understand the information the graph is relaying to them. Students will gain an understanding that Energy is Conserved, that Total Energy is the sum of all the energies involved in a situation and as one energy decreases, another increases, therefore conserving energy.

#### Organisms And The Concept Of Dynamic Equilibrium, Erin Gwara

##### Lesson Plans

• Students will understand the concept of energy pyramids and how energy decreases as you increase each level in the pyramid.

• Students will know the type of organisms found in each level of the energy pyramid.

Medieval Conquest, Aaron Harrington Jan 2006

#### Medieval Conquest, Aaron Harrington

##### Lesson Plans

Create an interactive “video game” that required the physics user to apply the laws of physics. -The physics user must apply their knowledge of projectile motion in order to defend his/her castle against the approaching army.

Potential And Kinetic Energy - What's It All About?, Fayne Winter, Larry Bedgood, Susan Cooper Apr 2005

#### Potential And Kinetic Energy - What's It All About?, Fayne Winter, Larry Bedgood, Susan Cooper

##### Lesson Plans

Our investigation deals with the difference between kinetic and potential energy, and different situations that model those energies. Students needed to define kinetic and potential energy. In addition they needed to discover what the equations are to calculate these energies. Students were to investigate different situations where these energies are evident using various modeling technologies and design a tangible model they could use to assist in explaining the difference between the two energies. Once students designed these models, they needed to be able to explain where these energies exist in these situations using verbal explanations, mathematical equations, physical displays, and ...

Potential And Kinetic Energy With A Pendulumn, Jacqueline Keily, Frank Rinere, Annette Pennella Aug 2004

#### Potential And Kinetic Energy With A Pendulumn, Jacqueline Keily, Frank Rinere, Annette Pennella

##### Lesson Plans

Students will learn that Energy and matter interact through forces that result in changes in motion, potential and kinetic energy are directly related to the operation of a pendulum.

Can You Save Your Egg?, Stephanie Monk-George, Scott Koch Jul 2003

#### Can You Save Your Egg?, Stephanie Monk-George, Scott Koch

##### Lesson Plans

Students will design a bungee jump that allows their egg to stop within 5 centimeters of the floor when dropped from 1.5 meters. After achieving success with their design, they will model their solution using Interactive Physics and then discuss and reflect upon energy and force.
