About the Contributors
- Develop an understanding of forces as interactions.
- Develop the ability to analyze the forces acting on objects.
- Develop the ability to analyze the motion of objects.
- Develop an appreciation for Newton's Laws of Motion.
- Identify and represent forces, including:
- Active pushes or pulls (e.g. by the human body; rubber bands
- Passive pushes or pulls (e.g. by floor or rope)
- Friction (e.g. sliding, rolling, or fluid resistance)
- Gravitational, electrical, and magnetic forces
- Explain the forces acting on objects that are:
- At rest
- Moving with a constant speed
- Moving with a constant acceleration
- Describe and explain (using words, pictures, data tables, and
graphs) the motion of objects in one dimension, including:
- Linear horizontal or vertical motion
- Falling, with and without air resistance
- Motion on an inclined plane (e.g. rolling and sliding)
- Describe the motion of objects using appropriate terms including:
- Instant in time
- Interval of time
- Instantaneous speed
- Develop a familiarity with terms related to force and motion
- Net force
