Included

6 - PowerPoint Presentations (pptx) 62 slides

18 - Worksheets/ Labs (docx)

4 - Unit Tests (CP and Pre-AP) with answer key (Examview and docx)

3 - Unit Reviews and Test Guides with Vocabulary (docx)

Subject/Topic Areas:

Measuring Motion (speed & velocity), Acceleration & Motion (calculating and graphing acceleration), Fundamental Forces, Balanced & Unbalanced Forces, Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion, Weight & Mass, Law of Universal Gravitation, Free- Fall Acceleration, Projectile Motion

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.

Learning Activities
