Balance and Unbalance Forces
Newton’s Three Laws of Motion
Types of Friction
Force Unit Includes:
1. Force and Newton’s Three Laws of Motion Reading Passage
The passage covers type of forces, balance and unbalance forces, net forces, Newton’s Three Laws of Motion and Momentum. Includes a concept analysis section with examples of balance and unbalance forces and a formula section with an example on how to calculate force.
Instruction Strategies for Reading Passage: Cornell Notes, Vienn Diagram, T-chart, Flow Chart, Concept Map.
2. Balance and Unbalance Concept Map
I use this concept as a review from Middle School prior knowledge on Balance and Unbalance Forces
3. Types of Frictions
I use this activity to review from Middle School prior knowledge on Friction
4. Net Force and Force Diagrams Activity
I use the activity as a way to give students practice on calculating and identifying net force and balance and unbalance forces.
5. Newton’s Three Laws of Motion and Net Force Activity
I use the activity as a way to give students practice to identify the laws of motion. Reinforce net forces.
6. Momentum Activity
I use the activity as a way to give students practice in calculating and explain momentum and collisions.
