Students will design an energy efficient heating and cooling system for a home, using the principles of energy exchange.
SEEd PHYS.2.4 Define a problem and propose a solution for a major global challenge that specifies qualitative and quantitative criteria and constraints and that accounts for societal needs and wants. Emphasize problems that require the application of conservation of energy principles through energy transfers and transformations. Examples could include feasibility studies to examining the capacity renewable energy resources to perform functions currently performed by nonrenewable fuels.
Lesson Performance Expectations
- Students will design an energy-efficient heating and cooling system for a home using the principles of energy exchange.
- Students will understand the economic and environmental significance of conserving heat and preventing energy
