The prompts help students to concentrate on a concept, brainstorm individually or in a group and focus their effort/writing. Through the writing prompts students improve their writing skills, review concepts, allow teachers to assess learning, enhance creativity and help students in integrating science to other subjects.
SPS7. Students will determine relationships among force, mass, and motion.
a. Apply Newton’s three laws to everyday situations by explaining the following:
• Relationship between force, mass and acceleration
• Equal and opposite forces
S8P5: Students will recognize characteristics of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major kinds of forces acting in nature.
a. Recognize that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that the force exerted depends on how much mass the objects have and how far apart they are.
S8P3. Students will investigate relationship between force, mass, and the motion of objects.
a. Determine the relationship between velocity and acceleration.
b. Demonstrate the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on an object in terms of gravity, inertia, and friction.
