Students will learn:

  • Newton's Second Law of Motion: The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.
  • How to find the force, mass, or acceleration of an object.

This lesson includes:

  • Teacher information to easily distribute the digital portion to your students through your learning management system such as Google Classroom, Schoology, etc.
  • A two-page informative text that details the law with checkpoint and overall comprehension questions
  • A Google Slide version of the text
  • A three-page word problem packet that will review force, mass, acceleration, and practice using the equation F = M x A. Questions will include illustration examples of different types of force for students to interpret. They include balanced and unbalanced, working together or against one another.
  • An answer key

This activity will get students thinking about Newton's second law of motion. You can have students work independently, in pairs, groups, or teach this as a whole class. Or you could even use it as a homework assignment! It is up to you to determine the levels of your students.
