Pebblebrook High School Weekly Overview Subject: Conceptual Physics Topic: Forces Curriculum standard(s): SP1. Students will analyze the relationships between force, mass, gravity, and the motion of objects a. Measure and calculate the magnitude of frictional forces and Newton’s three Laws of Motion. e. Measure and calculate the magnitude of gravitational forces. g. Measure and calculate centripetal force. h. Determine the conditions required to maintain a body in a state of static equilibrium. Esstential Question(s): What is the relationship between Force and Motion? How can we measure and calculate centripetal force? Opening: Warm-up - Review problem Specialized Instruction/Modification: A print out of the power points will be provided by Mr. Swann to each student as needed. *Modifications of this week’s tests & quizzes will be implemented by Mr. Swann *The classroom separate into smaller groups by each teacher to differentiate the lesson content as needed.
