Brief Summary of Unit

Enduring Understanding:
Students will understand that:
• Newton’s three laws of motion explain the motion of all objects.
• The gravitational force between two objects is related to the distance and mass of the objects.
Essential Question:
• What is the difference between velocity and acceleration?
• What is the difference between mass and weight?
• How do Newton’s Laws affect all motion on Earth?
• How is momentum related to mass and velocity?
• What is the Law of Conservation of Momentum?

Students will know: (Knowledge)
• To calculate the acceleration of an object, the change in velocity or speed is divided by the length of time interval over which the change occurred.
• Newton’s 1st Law of Motion states that an object moving at a constant velocity keeps moving at that velocity unless a net force acts on it.
• Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion states the net force acting on an object causes the object to accelerate in the direction of the net force.
• Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion states for every action force there is an equal and opposite reaction force.
• Gravity and friction affect all motion on Earth.
Students will be able to do (Skills)
• Calculate velocity and acceleration.
• Apply Newton’s three laws to real world situations by explaining the following: inertia, relationship between force, mass, and acceleration, equal and opposite forces
• Calculate force.
• Identify the different types of friction and its effect on motion.
