Today, students practiced using the formulas we learned yesterday. Students took turns running, walking, jogging, and rolling across the classroom. We measured the distance and time for each student, and the either calculated their speed or acceleration. I tried to mix in different units (ft/s, m/s, m/s2) to make sure they are familiar with a variety of examples. But really this was a day about practicing the formulas.

Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object. Emphasis is on balanced (Newton’s First Law) and unbalanced forces in a system, qualitative comparisons of forces, mass and changes in motion (Newton’s Second Law), frame of reference, and specification of units. Assessment is limited to forces and changes in motion in one-dimension in an inertial reference frame, and to change in one variable at a time. Assessment does not include the use of trigonometry.
Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle. Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
