After investigating linear motion, balanced and unbalanced forces, and Newton’s laws of motion, students apply the concepts. In this activity students are allowed to select ads (activities) that will earn them $25. Students use the concept of combination to add their ads since they cannot earn more or less than $25. Each ads mirrors life in the community and assesses how students transfer their new knowledge. During application students will research, plan, collaborate, design, create, and communicate.
SPS7. Students will determine relationships among force, mass, and motion.
a. Apply Newton’s three laws to everyday situations by explaining the following:
• Relationship between force, mass and acceleration
• Equal and opposite forces
8P5: Students will recognize characteristics of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major kinds of forces acting in nature.
a. Recognize that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that the force exerted
depends on how much mass the objects have and how far apart they are.
S8P3. Students will investigate relationship between force, mass, and the motion of objects.
a. Determine the relationship between velocity and acceleration.
b. Demonstrate the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on an object in terms of gravity, inertia,
