Force, Motion, and Energy
Students will be expected to:
- compare and contrast potential and kinetic energy
- investigate the methods of thermal energy transfer, including conduction, convection, and radiation
- have an understanding that thermal energy travels in a predictable pattern from warmer to cooler until all substances attain the same temperature
- demonstrate energy transformations such as energy in a flashlight battery changes from chemical energy to electrical energy to light energy
- identify and describe changes in position, direction, and speed of an object when acted upon balanced and unbalanced forces
- calculate average speed using distance and time measurements
- measure and graph changes in motions

What is speed?
Speed is a way of measuring how quickly something is moving or being done, or something moving fast. An example of speed is a car being driven 45 miles per hour. An example of speed is someone cleaning a room in 10 minutes. An example of speed is how quickly a jaguar runs.
