Concept Checker for Balance Beam Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the Balance Beam simulation consists of 28 questions organized into 7 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker.

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the Balance Beam simulation. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to predict whether a balance beam is in a state of balance or not.
  • The student should be able to analyze a balanced beam to determine the mass of an unknown object suspended at a known location on the beam.
