PS.10 b - Newton's Laws
The student will investigate and understand the scientific principles of work, force, and motion. Key concepts include
b) Newton’s laws of motion.
Bloom's Levels: Analyze; Understand
- Motion is a key characteristic of all matter that can be observed, described, and measured.
- Energy change can be understood in terms of forces- pushes or pulls.
- I can explain why, when two objects collide, they often bounce backwards.
- I can design a roller coaster
UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD
- Newton’s three laws of motion describe the motion of all common objects.
- Mass and weight are not equivalent. Mass is the amount of matter in a given substance. Weight is a measure of the force due to gravity acting on a mass. Weight is measured in newtons.
In order to meet this standard, it is expected that students will
b) identify situations that illustrate each Law of Motion.
a-d) differentiate between mass and weight.
