The Basics of Force and Motion

This workshop gives teachers practical activities for discovering core ideas related to motion and forces. The activities build skills in science and engineering practices with emphasis on the ability to develop models, and then plan and carry out investigations to test those models.

Important core ideas include: speed and acceleration, gravitational forces, gravitational interactions, and Newton’s Laws (particularly the third).

Skills also include measurement, data collection, graphing, and performing meaningful calculations.
