Your introductory physical science class will be energized by this PowerPoint. They will be able to define energy, work, and power. They will be able to perform calculations for kinetic and potential energy. They will be able to describe the various simple machines and forms of energy. Truly, this selection of 71 slides can serve as a note-taking guide for several lessons on energy and work. Make sure to break it up with hands-on experience using simple machines and pendulums.
Students use a visual thesaurus and participate in a vocabulary review contest. In this physics vocabulary lesson, students brainstorm various forms of energy and categorize sets of energy terms correctly. Students eliminate a word that does not belong from a set of words and replace it with one that fits.
Although the title of this presentation is "Meeting Physics," it really is more focused on the scientific method and the reporting of data.Two slides define and break physics down into subdivisions, but they can be left out if you just need a simple presentation to teach scientific inquiry in any class. Topics touched upon include hypotheses, theory, accuracy, precision, and significant figures. The slides are not appealing visually, but the content is appropriate.
Forty-five questions dealing with all aspects of momentum and mechanical energy can be found in this high school physics unit review. A combination of short answers and calculations are demanded from learners to help them prepare for an exam. Pupils define, write out equations for, and solve problems involving momentum, impulse, collisions, work, power, energy, and machines. This is a beneficial assignment for your physicists to complete when studying mechanics.
An excellent set of slides that progresses through definitions and lists of physical and chemical weathering to discuss and help your students make notes. The slideshow then works through examples of the weathering categories, such as types of erosion. It finishes with a slide of questions that summarize the points given.
