College Board Standards

BIG IDEA 3: The interactions of an object with other objects can be described by forces.

  • 3.A.1.1: The student is able to discuss and express the motion of an object using narrative, mathematical, and graphical representations/constructions. [SP 1.5, 2.1, 2.2]
  • 3.A.1.2: The student is able to plan and design an experimental investigation of the motion of an object. [SP 4.2]
  • 3.A.1.3: The student is able to analyze experimental data describing the motion of an object and is able to discuss and express the results of the analysis using narrative, mathematical, and graphical representations/constructions. [SP 5.1]
