## Weekly Syllabus

Below is a sample breakdown of the Motion - Physics Lab chapter into a 5-day school week. Based on the pace of your course, you may need to adapt the lesson plan to fit your needs.

Day Topics Key Terms and Concepts Covered
Monday Forces imposed on objects, Newton's first law, measuring the speed of an object Examine effects of balanced and unbalanced forces in many directions on an object, analyze the relationship between mass and inertia and effects of different types of forces on inertial motion, compare instantaneous and average speeds by calculating the speed of an object from measurements of distance and time
Tuesday Graphing the motion of an object and accelerating objects, examining acceleration and gravity Analyze how different types of graphs describe the motion of objects, create and interpret graphs of several accelerating objects, examine ball acceleration when thrown in the air
Wednesday Gravity and projectile motion, Newton's second law, friction's effect on accelerating objects Analyze projectile motion with different launch angles, examine how force, mass and acceleration are related, investigate effects of friction on an object that is accelerating
Thursday Newton's third law, conservation of momentum, energy conversions using inclined planes Observe collisions between moving balls of different masses to study action and reaction, examine total momentum through object collisions, measure energy conversion between kinetic and potential using inclined planes
Friday Centripetal motion, rotational inertia, universal gravitation, stable orbital motion of a satellite Study aspects of centripetal motion using a rotating rod, compare the angular acceleration and rotational velocity of hollow and solid balls rolling down a ramp, analyze the inverse square of gravity, investigate conditions for maintaining the stable orbital motion of a launched satellite
