File Name: Kinetic Energy Concept Mapping Activity

File Submitter: FizziksGuy

File Submitted: 25 Oct 2013

File Category: Dynamics

An end-of-kinematics / beginning-of-dynamics concept mapping exercise in which students build a concept map to create a "big-picture" look at what has been studied so far. The current version assumes students have access to Inspiration software, though I have also done this with index cards and string, poster paper, etc. The end-of-activity group discussion typically centers around transitioning from describing motion to causing motion, which introduced the concept of forces, making this a great transition activity from kinematics to dynamics.
