Energy Tracking Diagrams
We describe an energy representation, called an Energy Tracking Diagram, that incorporates multiple learning targets for energy, including conservation, forms, tracking (transfer and transformation), and appropriate consideration of systems in complex real-world scenarios. Energy Tracking Diagrams prompt learners to recognize the mechanisms for and constraints on energy transfer and transformation processes. As powerful visual representations, Energy Tracking Diagrams uniquely illuminate learners’ understanding of energy dynamics and can therefore also be used for assessment purposes.
