## High School Physics

(6 Units, 80 Lessons)

#### 1. Inertia is Latin for "Lazy"

Big Idea: Newton's 1st Law of Motion states that an object in motion maintains its motion and an object at rest remains at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force.
Standards:
Favorites (7)   Resources (16)   Reflections (1)

#### 2. Something About Sigma: Calculating Net Force

Big Idea: Free body diagrams are a useful tool to understand all of the forces acting on an object and the resulting objects motion.
Standards:
Favorites (3)   Resources (19)   Reflections (1)

#### 3. Manipulating Forces

Big Idea: An object changes its current motion when an unbalanced force acts it.
Standards:
Favorites (3)   Resources (15)   Reflections (1)

#### 4. Discovering Newton's 2nd Law

Big Idea: F=ma can be determined experimentally.
Standards:
Favorites (7)   Resources (17)   Reflections (1)

#### 5. Applying Newton's Second Law Quantitatively

Big Idea: The acceleration of an object is always in the direction of the net force acting on it.
Standards:
Favorites (3)   Resources (18)   Reflections (1)

#### 6. Plan a Trip to the Asteroid Belt

Big Idea: Kinematics equations and Newton's 2nd Law allow us to better understand the universe around us and to make predictions about an object's motion.
Standards:
Favorites (3)   Resources (19)   Reflections (1)

#### 7. Combining Newton's Second Law and Kinematics

Big Idea: Kinematics equations and Newton's 2nd Law allow us to better understand the world around us and to make predictions about the motion of an object.
Standards:
Favorites (2)   Resources (14)   Reflections (1)

#### 8. Friction Is Not Fiction!

Big Idea: The force of friction between two objects is determined by the normal force and the properties of the surfaces in contact.
Standards:
Favorites (0)   Resources (20)   Reflections (1)

#### 9. Pushing the Pathfinder

Big Idea: The mass of an object can be determined by applying a net force to it and measuring its acceleration.
Standards:
Favorites (9)   Resources (19)   Reflections (2)

#### 10. Self-Assessment on Forces

Big Idea: Reflection is a powerful learning tool that helps students learn with intention.
Standards:
Favorites (2)   Resources (12)   Reflections (1)

#### 11. Quiz on Newton's Laws

Big Idea: Summative assessments are a tool to keep students accountable for learning and to inform the teacher of students' understanding.
