1.Students will design and carry out a demonstration of Newton’s first law of motion. 2.Students will design and carry out an investigation of Newton’s second law of motion. 3.Students will design and carry out a demonstration of the conservation of momentum and explain its relation to Newton’s third law of motion.
What happens when a bat hits a baseball? Why does a rolling ball eventually stop? How do we walk, jump or run? The answer lies in physics! In this topic, students get the chance to explore how Newton’s Laws of Motion explain the ways that things move.You won’t have to "force" your students to learn — they’ll push, pull, drop, roll, and fling their way through a variety of demonstrations and activities illustrating the different forces on everything around us.
