## Potential Energy: How is it Related to Kinetic Energy?

Students observe a simulation of matchbox toy cars on ramps to learn the relationship between potential energy and kinetic energy. In this math and science lesson, students arrange the ramps on the floor and place the car at the top of the ramp. Students release the car, recording the distance the car travels during three trial runs. Depending on math proficiency, students either develop a bar graph or average the numbers to interpret the results.
