```Synthesized Integrated Lesson Plan for Newton’s Laws and using Algebraic Formalae
This lesson plan combines a science lesson introducing Newton’s three laws of motion
with a math lesson on the basics of algebraic functions. Changes made to the original Newton’s
three laws lesson can be identified with the following: green text denotes addition of math
lesson; blue bold text denotes WAC elements; and purple italicized text denotes cultural
inclusion elements.

Review
Review variables and solving algebraic formulas (DOK 2), practice real-life
use of formulas for problem-solving (DOK 2-3), describe other ways to
solve the same problems without formulas (DOK 3).
variables, algebra, formulas, expressions, equations
Activity description/Teacher does
Teacher asks class if they know what
algebraic formulas are, and what the
differences are between formulas and
equations or expressions. Teacher then asks
what they want to learn about it.
Teacher passes out intro to algebra
handouts and reviews concepts and
vocabulary. Vocabulary goes on the board,
and students take notes on definitions.
Provide videos on introduction to algebra at
www.mathantics.com for whole class or
groups, as necessary.
Teacher then asks students to think of reallife situations where using a formula would
help with problem-solving (examples:
figuring out fuel efficiency in your car;

can share how the cost of loans
or credit cards might work in
their own countries
how much interest you’re paying on a loan
or credit card balance).

differentiated abilities. Teacher will
circulate through the class and check in on
groups, and provide additional supports to

math understanding.

questions to determine how they arrived at
their answers, or whether they can think of

the 2 and 3 law to solve problems (DOK

Students will solve formulaic
problems.
Students will also learn to
identify how variables work
within a formula, and use the
appropriate terms for elements
of a formula (variable, term,
operation, etc.)

Choose an activity that complements
Newton’s laws. Included are “Matchbox
Cars” or “Superball Bounce”.
For whichever experiment is chosen,
teacher distributes the copies of handouts
and materials, and reads the instructions
make sure that students understand the
instructions, and reviews all vocabulary.
Teacher pairs students with different
partners to complete the tasks. (NOTE:
both labs include a computer research
component. If computers are not available,
Students will solve laws of
motion problems.
Students will also learn to
identify how variables work
within a formula, and use the
appropriate terms for elements
of a formula (variable, term,
operation, etc.)
Student work in pairs or groups
to complete the experiments.
Cultural inclusion: have
students form groups that are
culturally diverse to whatever
extent possible, and encourage
discussion amongst them while
they are performing the
activity to compare their own

Teachers ask prompting questions to spur
cultural discussion, and circulate to hear
and participate in them.
Teacher monitors the class and provides
support when needed, writes down some
common mistakes for error correction later
on. Progress through the steps of the
experiment can be kept on the board, and
data collected from each group can be
compiled in a table on the board so students
can see how data can vary even when
they’re all doing the same thing.
Discuss how algebra skills helps
understanding of how Newton’s laws of
motion work. Ask students to think of ways
to solve motion problems without algebra,
and emphasize how difficult
communicating it to others would be
without algebra. While things can be
explained, detail and accuracy are lost.
Ask students what sort of jobs would
require the kind of skills or knowledge they
learned today with the formulas and laws of
motion.
Cultural inclusion: ask students what sort
of jobs are available in their home
countries that are relevant to this lesson,
and encourage them to describe how it’s
the same or different from how it’s done
here (technology differences, regulations,
etc)

lab worksheets.
hard it would be to understand
physics without math or
algebra. Students attempt to
explain a specific example of
Newton’s 2 law without math.
Students discuss different
kinds of jobs they think would
need these skills and
knowledge.

Formal
Assessment
Teacher hands out the writing prompt,
and reads through the instructions with
the class to ensure understanding.
Vocabulary is also reviewed. (Optional:
his historical context, and students can
what they learned about him and his
work.)
Differentiated assignments: requiring
one paragraph or an essay, and grading
at skill level for concepts and mechanics.
Cultural inclusion: Review vocabulary
words in other languages represented by
the students in the class, and discuss
similarities or differences in the word
structure or variations in definition.
Students write a reflection
paragraph (or essay depending
on level) explaining what they
learned and how it was reflected
in the activity, as well as how
the scientific method (learned in
an earlier lesson) was used in
this activity.
Cultural inclusion: student can
also write about jobs in their
home countries, or how their own
culture is represented in jobs in
the U.S. that are relevant to this
lesson.
