Energy/Power Performance Task
This resource, created by Liz Hudd of Red Rocks Community College, will invite students to explore the relationship between energy and power. Students will begin by calculating the power output of running and walking up a flight of stairs and move on to calculating the power generation and energy from solar panels on schools. The activity requires two days of in-class work. This five page pdf document contains the student assessment for the activity and includes all the questions and calculations students will need to complete. An overview of the lesson is also available in a pdf titled What is Energy? on Red Rocks Community College's website.
