Momentum and Collisions


A Concept-Builder is an interactive questioning module that presents learners with carefully crafted questions that target various aspects of a concept. Each Concept Builder focuses the learner's attention upon a discrete learning outcome. Questions target that outcome from a variety of angles using multiple difficulty levels or varying activities. Learners ponder the given information and answer questions in the hopes of earning Stars and Trophies. These Stars (for answering questions) and Trophies (for completing levels or activities) are displayed on the screen, allowing a teacher to track student progress. The following Concept Builders target concepts associated with Momentum and Collisions.



Momentum
 
Learning Goal:  To use an understanding of momentum as a vector whose magnitude is the product of mass times velocity in order to predict how momentum will change, to rank the momentum of three different objects, and to identify the direction of the momentum vector.



Case Studies: Impulse and Force
 
Learning Goal:  To use impulse-momentum change theorem to analyze a variety of comparative collisions and predict which collision involves the greatest momentum change, impulse, and force.



Explosions - Law Enforcement
 
Learning Goal:  To use an understanding of the law of momentum conservation in order to identify situations that violate the law. 




Hit and Stick Collisions - Law Enforcement
 
Learning Goal:  To use an understanding of the law of momentum conservation in order to identify situations that violate the law.
