Stepping Up to PE and KE

The Stepping Up to PE and KE Concept Builder relies on the use of a staircase model to help learners to relate the potential energy of an object to the height of the object. Learners will also relate the change in potential energy of a falling object to the change in kinetic energy.  There are three difficulty levels, with each level adding an extra component of difficulty ... and an extra blank to determine.  A built-in number pad makes numerical entry very easy on mobile devices. Feedback is immediate and communicated by means of a color code system. Learners can repeat a difficulty level in an effort to improve their health percentage. Help is provided for each difficulty level. Use of this Concept Builder with our Task Tracker system allows teachers to track student progress.
