# Lesson Plan: Kinetic Energy Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to calculate the kinetic energy of a moving particle of mass đť‘š that moves with a velocity of magnitude đť‘Ł.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

- recall and state the definition of kinetic energy,
- calculate the kinetic energy of an object given its mass and velocity,
- calculate the mass or velocity of an object given its kinetic energy,
- solve real-world problems involving kinetic energy,
- calculate kinetic energy when the velocity is given in vector form,
- use kinetic energy in combination with Newtonâ€™s second law to solve problems,
- use kinetic energy in combination with the equations of motion to solve problems.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

- vector notation and dot products,
- Newtonâ€™s second law of motion,
- the equations of motion.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

- the workâ€“energy principle.
