the student will be able to calculate average speed using distance and time measurements;
: measure and graph changes in motion;
contrast situations where work is done with different amounts of force to situations where no work is done such as moving a box with a ramp and without a ramp, or standing still;
demonstrate and calculate how unbalanced forces change the speed or direction of an object's motion;
: differentiate between speed, velocity, and acceleration; and
: investigate and describe applications of Newton's law of inertia, law of force and acceleration, and law of action-reaction such as in vehicle restraints, sports activities, amusement park rides, Earth's tectonic activities, and rocket launches.
