Learning Intentions Students will be able to: • explain that one or more different forms (or types) of energy can be present at the same time • understand how one form of energy can be transformed into other forms and vice versa • identify that the total amount of energy remains constant (total energy is conserved) • identify and describe the relationship between the length of a pendulum and its period • identify and describe the relationship between the mass and angle of release of a pendulum and its period • draw conclusions based on evidence • identify sources of error • identify improvements that could increase the reliability of data • communicate science ideas using appropriate language and representations.
