Missouri Standards

MO.2. Properties and Principals of Force and Motion
2.1. The motion of an object is described by its change in position relative to another object or point
2.1.A. The motion of an object is described as a change in position, direction, and speed relative to another object (frame of reference)
2.1.A.b. Scope and Sequence - Force, Motion, and Work: Classify different types of motion (e.g., straight line, projectile, circular, vibrational)
2.1.A.c. Scope and Sequence - Force, Motion, and Work: Given an object in motion, calculate its speed (distance/time)
2.1.A.d. Scope and Sequence - Force, Motion, and Work: Interpret a line graph representing an object's motion in terms of distance over time (speed) using metric units
2.2. Forces affect motion
2.2.A. Forces are classified as either contact (pushes, pulls, friction, buoyancy) or non-contact forces (gravity, magnetism), that can be described in terms of direction and magnitude
2.2.A.a. Scope and Sequence - Force, Motion, and Work: Identify and describe the types of forces acting on an object in motion, at rest, floating/sinking (i.e., type of force, direction, amount of force in Newtons)
2.2.A.b. Scope and Sequence - Force, Motion, and Work: Compare the forces acting on an object by using a spring scale to measure them to the nearest Newton
2.2.D. Newton's Laws of Motion explain the interaction of mass and forces, and are used to predict changes in motion
2.2.D.c. Scope and Sequence - Force, Motion, and Work: Explain that a change in motion is the result of an unbalanced force acting upon an object
MO.7. Scientific Inquiry
7.1. Science understanding is developed through the use of science process skills, scientific knowledge, scientific investigation, reasoning, and critical thinking
7.1.D. The nature of science relies upon communication of results and justification of explanations
7.1.D.a. Scope and Sequence - All Units: Communicate the procedures and results of investigations and explanations through: oral presentations, drawings and maps, data tables (allowing for the recording and analysis of data relevant to the experiment, such as independent and dependent variables, multiple trials, beginning and ending times or temperatures, derived quantities) graphs (bar, single line, pictograph), equations and writings
