Design a roller coaster--change the heights of the hills and loop-the-loop, and see what happens. If you get the coaster going too fast . . . well, you'll see, and you'll learn about motion and energy too.

Hi Nancy,

This page includes a java applet, and it is
sometimes rather slow to load.  It just took it
nearly a minute to load through my campus
connection.  It might take much longer through a
dial-up connection.

Thanks for the comment,

Bruce
