May the Force be With You: Forces and Motion

  • $5.50

An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic, Standards-based Unit on Forces and Motion Newton's three laws are essential to the understanding of the physics concepts of motion and force which directly leads to energy-its conservation, work, and power. This unit will follow the discoveries and development of the laws, examples of the laws in everyday life and equations that follow the laws.

In this unit students will be challenged to determine and evaluate decisions as they relate to science and math. Through the study of forces and motion the students will learn how science supports the math concepts that build on one another and become more complex. This experience will prepare the student to understand forces and motion both in his own life, and in the lives of the nested societies which he resides. In mathematics, students will collect, interpret and analyze data with specific emphasis on data that deals with forces and motion.
