I post these guiding questions on the board with my daily objectives. They help students become more aware of what they will need to know by the end of a lesson/unit.
Guiding Questions for the Newton's Laws Unit include:
How do Newton’s laws explain the effect of all forces acting on an object?
What is inertia?
What are action-reaction forces?
What is the mathematical relationship between force and acceleration?
How are force, mass, and acceleration related?
What pattern of motion is identified with the law of inertia?
What pattern exists in the law of force and acceleration?
What pattern exists in the law of action-reaction?
How is everyday life affected by the laws of motion? Give examples for each law.
