Pushes and pulls can have different strengths and directions, and can change the speed or direction of an object’s motion or start or stop it.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.
Students can use the full range of science and engineering practices to make sense of natural phenomena and solve problems that require understanding interactions between objects and within systems of objects.
Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
Identify and predict how the direction or speed of an object may change due to an outside force
