Amusement parks are more than just entertaining…they are a great place to study different types of motion. Some rides, like the roller coaster, use structural slopes to accelerate and decelerate along a course, whereas other rides travel along circular or linear pathways.

This episode challenges students to:
•Understand how gravity figures into amusement park rides.
•Understand that the conversion of potential energy to kinetic energy is all that is needed to drive a roller coaster.
•Investigate the many uses of motion in entertainment.
