SP2

Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about how forces affect the motion of objects.

North Georgia Canopy Tours

Who says physics can’t be fun? They can be very entertaining when you use them to go zip lining. And that’s what we do at North Georgia Canopy Tours in Lula. Of course, we go zip lining with a...

Atlanta Motorsports Park

We visit the birthplace of NASCAR, along with a brand new country club for car lovers. That’s right—instead of a golf course, they have a racetrack! In addition to looking back at the area's rich...

Six Flags Over Georgia

There’s a man working at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell who claims to have the best job in North America. Who could pass up an opportunity to find out why? Not us! And it turns out there are a...

KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia

Fast Forward travels to the west side of the state to clear up some misconceptions about modern factories. We visit KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia in West Point. This state-of-the-art facility...

Georgia Olive Farms

It’s a little-known fact that Georgia farms grew olives back in the 1800s. But it’s becoming a much bigger-known fact that this crop is making a comeback. Thanks to people like State...

SP2 a

Construct an explanation based on evidence using Newton’s Laws of how forces affect the acceleration of a body. 

Explain and predict the motion of a body in absence of a force and when forces are applied using Newton’s 1st Law (principle of inertia). 

Calculate the acceleration for an object using Newton’s 2nd Law, including situations where multiple forces act together.

Georgia Olive Farms

It’s a little known fact that Georgia farms grew olives back in the 1800s. But it’s becoming a much better known fact that this crop is making a comeback. Thanks to people like State Representative and farmer Jason Shaw, we learn why our state’s climate is so hospitable to the olive, creating a whole new industry.

KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia

Fast Forward travels to the West side of the state to clear up some misconceptions about modern factories. We visit KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia in West Point. This state-of-the-art facility rolls out one new car every minute, and we show the process—going from steel coils all the way to their test track.

Six Flags Over Georgia

There’s a man working at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell, who claims to have the best job in North America. Who could pass up an opportunity to find out why? Not us! And it turns out there are a lot of amazing jobs in this place. For example, they actually have jobs riding rides! And if you want to set yourself up for a job like this, it’ll help to learn some science. You’ll find out why.

North Georgia Canopy Tours

Who says physics can’t be fun? They can be very entertaining when you use them to go zip lining. And that’s what we do at North Georgia Canopy Tours in Lula. Of course we go zip lining with a focus on physics and environmental education. That means getting employees to explain how Isaac Newton’s basic laws come into play in their jobs.

Atlanta Motorsports Park

We visit the birthplace of NASCAR, along with a brand new country club for car lovers. That’s right. Instead of a golf course, they have a racetrack! In addition to taking a look back at the area's rich NASCAR history, Teachable Moments include a detailed look at Newton's Second Law of Motion, and an explanation of sound basics, including how sound waves dissipate over distance.
