Explore science concepts in force and motion and come away
with a deeper understanding that will help you engage your
students in their own explorations. With science and education
experts as your guides, learn more about gravity, friction,
air resistance, magnetism, and tension through activities,
discussions, and demonstrations. Extensive footage shot in
real classrooms shows students learning and building on ideas
as they explore the relationships among motion, force, size,
mass, and speed. As you watch the students develop understanding
through activities that connect science concepts to real-world
phenomena, you will be asked to think about your own ideas
on force and motion and compare them to what you observe.
