SC-HS-1.2.1

Students will

·         select or construct accurate and appropriate representations for motion (visual, graphical, and mathematical);

·         defend conclusions/explanations about the motion of objects and real-life phenomena from evidence/data.

 

Objects change their motion only when a net force is applied. Newton’s Laws of motion are used to describe the effects of forces on the motion of objects. Conservation of mechanical energy and conservation of momentum may also be used to predict motion.
