Newton's Laws Of Motion: Basics Of Modern Physics 4 Week FLEX Course

This 4 wk FLEX course will introduce Sir Isaac Newton to students. The group will learn about his life, accomplishments, and then discover the components of his Laws of Motion. It is perfect for grades 5-9 learners who want to learn more about motion or would like to learn the basics of physics (physical science).

Objectives - Newton's Laws of Motion
The objectives for the Newton's Laws of Motion module are listed below.
1:The student should understand the significance of Newton's law of inertia by identifying and refuting classic misconceptions concerning the causes of motion. The student should recognize inertia as a property of an object which depends solely upon mass.
2.The student should be able to relate the presence of balanced or unbalanced forces to the state of motion of an object.
The student should be able to relate force diagrams and force information to information describing the motion of an object.
3.The student should be able to relate the state of motion of an object (especially the direction of the acceleration) to the magnitudes of the individual forces which act upon it.The student should be able to relate the net force of an object to the acceleration of the object.
4.The student should be able to identify the forces acting upon an object if given a physical description of the situation.
5.Student should be able to analyze a physical scenario and determine the relative magnitude of forces acting upon the object in the scenario.
6. The student should be able to distinguish between the concepts of mass and weight.
The student should be able to calculate the mass of an object if given its weight (or vice versa).
7.The student should be able to identify the proportional relationship between acceleration, net force, and mass.
The student should be able to predict the quantitative effect of an alteration in the net force or mass of an object upon the acceleration of that object.
Mrs. Collins is a certified science and gifted education teacher. She has experience teaching various types of science courses, and this course is a portion of her physical science curriculum. 
Student Project:
Pick one of Newton's laws to investigate further. 
-create a storyboard (draw 6 boxes and create a cartoon)
-write a poem or rap
-make a video explaining the law
-draw a poster explaining the law itself
-create a word collage
-or find an alternative creative way to explain and show the law you have chosen
The student will present their project using their webcam, and then upload the finished product for other classmates to see. All students will have 4 weeks to complete the project. Mrs. Collins will be available to help, if you need her help via private Outschool chat. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
ruler calculator notebook paper pencil pen coloring pencils, markers, and/or crayons For experiments (optional, if the student does not have these items they can watch the lab video instead): matchbox cars marbles two heavy books coins plate (paper or ceramic) one boiled egg one raw egg copper wire (optional) AA batteries apple ruler
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
A practice test and key will be given the last week of school if the student wants to check his/her knowledge of the laws of motion. But this is optional. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents are asked to help with the first week practice assignments, and encouraged to check the class wall once a week. 
Teacher created curriculum, using Glencoe Physical Science curriculum.
