Concept Checker for Rocket Sled Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Rocket Sled simulation consists of 36 questions organized into 9 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker.

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the Rocket Sled simulation. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to use force information to predict whether an object will slow down, speed up, or move at a constant speed.
  • The student be able to relate a force diagram to the type of motion (constant speed, speeding up, slowing down) that an object will experience.
