Roller Coaster Final Assignment (10pts): Instructions

·       Choose one of the topics below and write an essay.

·       Organize your response so that it includes at least three supporting details that you have learned from the reading passage, video, interactive activity, and other materials in this lesson.

·       Use at least three vocabulary words (or a form of the words) as part of your supporting details. For example, for the word jump, you could use jumps, jumped, or jumping.

 

Essay Topics

1. Describe the transfer of energy within a roller coaster ride. Be sure to explain in

your essay:

• What types of energy are present during a roller coaster ride

• How the changes in form of energy affect the roller coaster cars’ movement

 

2. Imagine you’re on a roller coaster ride. Describe the changes in forces that happen

during the course of the ride. Be sure to include in your essay:

• Which part of the ride is the most exciting for you, and why

• Where potential energy and kinetic energy must be greatest and least

• How the design of a track makes this happen

 

Vocabulary Words
