Concept Checker for Roller Coaster Model Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Roller Coaster Model simulation consists of 29 questions organized into 8 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 Roller Coaster Model 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 describe the changes that occur (or don't occur) in the potential energy, kinetic energy, mechanical energy, and speed of a roller coaster car as it travels along the track.
