SC.5.P. PHYSICAL SCIENCE: FORCES AND MOTION
5.P.5. The student will demonstrate an understanding of the factors that affect the motion of an object.
5.P.5A. Conceptual Understanding: The motion of an object can be described in terms of its position, direction, and speed. The rate and motion of an object is determined by multiple factors.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
5.P.5A.1. Use mathematical and computational thinking to describe and predict the motion of an object (including position, direction, and speed).
5.P.5A.2. Develop and use models to explain how the amount or type of force (contact and non-contact) affects the motion of an object.
5.P.5A.4. Analyze and interpret data to describe how a change of force, a change in mass, or friction affects the motion of an object.
