## Energy model

In this model we will learn what energy is, its different storage mechanisms, and how it is transferred within systems. Students will be able to solve complex energy problems involving multiple storage mechanisms and energy transfers in a system.

## standards

EM1 - I can use words and pie charts to represent the types of energy and energy changes in a system.

EM2 - I can solve for energy and other variables in simple scenarios.

EM3 - I can use the law of conservation of energy to solve complex energy problems.

EM4 - I can describe work and find the amount of work done on a system.

EM5 - I can describe power and find the amount of power in a system.

EM2 - I can solve for energy and other variables in simple scenarios.
