SPS8. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain the relationships among force, mass, and motion.

a. Plan and carry out an investigation t o analyze the motion of an object using mathematical and graphical models. (Clarification statement: Mathematical and graphical models could include distance, displacement, speed, velocity, time and acceleration.)

b. Construct an explanation based on experimental evidence to support the claims presented in Newton’ s three laws of motion (Clarification statement: Evidence could demonstrate relationships among force, mass, velocity, and acceleration.)

c. Analyze and interpret data to identify the relationship between mass and gravitational force for falling objects.

d. Us e mathematics and computational thinking to identify the relationships between work, mechanical advantage, and simple machines.
