# Ch 3: AP Physics 1 Newton's Laws: Homeschool Curriculum

The Newton's laws unit of this AP Physics 1 Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about Newton's laws of motion. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

## Who's it for?

This unit of our AP Physics 1 Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about Newton's laws of motion. There is no faster or easier way to learn about Newton's laws. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn about motion, types of forces, gravity, friction and the difference between mass and weight.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

## How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a Newton's laws unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

## Newton's Laws Unit Objectives:

• Discover the effect force has on motion.
• Understand the differences between inertia and mass.
• Calculate an object's weight with a known mass.
• See how an object's state of motion is defined by its velocity.
• Learn about the types of forces.
• Identify the purpose of free-body diagrams.
• Define net force and see how to calculate it.
• Examine the force-acceleration relationship.
• Determine how to find an object's acceleration.
• Understand how to identify individual forces acting upon objects.
• Find out how air resistance impacts the velocity of falling objects.
• Explore the relationship that exists between two forces.
• Apply Newton's laws to the concepts of mass, weight and gravity.
• Provide examples of action-reaction force pairs.
• Understand examples of normal force.
• Identify types of friction.
• Learn about the forces that act upon objects on inclined planes.
