    Unit 5:  Force and Motion

    Science standards I WILL learn…

             (8.6 A) demonstrate and calculate how unbalanced forces   change the speed or direction  of an object’s motion

     

             (8.6 B) differentiate between speed, velocity, and acceleration

     

    Prior Knowledge ( from 6th and 7th grade)

              (7.7A) contrast situations where work is done with different amounts of force   to situations where no work is done such as moving a box with a ramp  and  without a ramp, or standing still

              (6.8 A) compare and contrast potential and kinetic energy

              (6.8 C) calculate average speed using distance and time measurements

              (6.8 D) measure and graph changes in motion

              (6.9 C) demonstrate energy transformations such as energy in a flashlight  battery changes from chemical energy to electrical energy to light   energy
