7th Curriculum Guide Outline 2016 - 2017
Driving Question:
How can one describe physical interactions between objects and within systems of objects?
BOOK: Motion, Forces and Energy
Chapter 1: Describing and Measuring Motion
1.1- Describing and Measuring Motion
1.3- Acceleration
Key terms:
● motion
● reference point
● speed (no calculations)
● velocity
● acceleration (no calculations)
● slope
Key concepts and standards:
● an object is in motion if it changes position relative to a reference point. (MS-PS2-2)
● when you know both the speed and the direction of an object’s motion, you know the velocity of
the object (MS-PS2-2; clarification statement help students understand Newton’s 2nd Law)
● acceleration is a change in velocity (increasing speed, decreasing speed, or a change in
direction) (MS-PS2-2; clarification statement help students understand Newton’s 2nd Law)
Key Investigations/Engineering:
● student plans and designs investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's
motion depends on the sums of the forces on the object, and the mass of the object
○ changing one variable at a time (force or mass)

● gravity

Key concepts and standards:
A force is described by its strength and by the direction in which it acts. (MS-PS2-2)
Unbalanced forces acting on an object result in a net force and cause a change in the
object’s motion. (MS-PS2-2)
Balanced forces acting on an object do not change the object’s motion. (MS-PS2-2)
Two factors affect the gravitational attraction between objects: mass and distance. (MSPS2-4)
An object at rest will remain at rest, and an object moving at a constant velocity will
continue moving at a constant velocity, unless it is acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Acceleration depends on the object’s mass and on the net force acting on the object.
If one object exerts a force on another object, then the second object exerts a force of
equal strength in the opposite direction on the first object. (MS-PS2-1)
Impact of collisions between two cars and between a car and stationary objects (MSPS2-1)
Gravitational interactions are always attractive (MS-PS2-4)
When two objects interact, each one exerts a force on the other that can cause energy
