Today, we began our study of Newton’s Laws, beginning with his first law. We defined it as “An object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.” We then went through a PowerPoint (posted above) that discussed some of the intricacies within the law as well as provided several examples. I also like to mix in several demos (see video here) including: the quarter snatch, the penny on the playing card, the flying yo-yo, the beaker and the paper, and the egg tower.

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.
