HS-PS2-1 Evidence Statement

Physical Science: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions - Evidence Statement 1

HS-PS2-1: Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.

[Clarification Statement: Examples of data could include tables or graphs of position or velocity as a function of time for objects subject to a net unbalanced force, such as a falling object, an object rolling down a ramp, or a moving object being pulled by a constant force.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to one-dimensional motion and to macroscopic objects moving at non-relativistic speeds.]


For more specific information, including ways this performance expectation can achieve three-dimensional learning, please see this NGSS Evidence Statement.
