Educator Resources for Energy Skate Park: Basics

In Energy Skate Park: Basics, students explore the conservation of mechanical energy with a skateboarder on different tracks. Students investigate how mass, height, speed, and friction relate to the energy in the system. Bar and pie charts represent the skater’s energy, which students can relate to the position and speed of the skater. Students can build their own tracks, ramps, and jumps for the skater.
