Students will gain experience in critically looking at graphs and peripheral information in order to read and understand the information the graph is relaying to them. Students will gain an understanding that Energy is Conserved, that Total Energy is the sum of all the energies involved in a situation and as one energy decreases, another increases, therefore conserving energy.
