Physics

OBJECTIVE:
Motion and Forces
5.P.1 Understand force, motion and the relationship between them.
5.P.1.1 Explain how factors such as gravity, friction, and change in mass affect the motion of objects.
5.P.1.2. Infer the motion of objects in terms of how far they travel in a certain amount of time and the direction in which they travel.
5.P.1.3. Illustrate the motion of an object using a graph to show a change in position over a
5.P.1.4. Predict the effect of a given force or a change in mass on the motion of an object.
