This lessons explains the basics of work and energy in physics terms with the real life application of allowing students to justify to their parents how much work they are actually doing. The physics equations that apply to this concept are also incorporated.

To start this lesson off, ask the class if they think they receive too much work. After the class answers this question, state that you are going to give them a way to calculate just how much work they are doing by teaching them the physics concepts of work and energy. The youtube video can then be shown.
