Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
force
A force is a push or a pull.
net
Net force is the sum of forces acting on an object.
balanced
balanced forces: are equal and opposite.
They do not cause motion

unbalanced
unbalanced forces: are not equal.
They can cause things to move.
arrows
Force arrows show the magnitude and direction of a force.
The width or length can show strength.
inertia
Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist change to its motion. An object's inertia is related to its mass.
mass
Mass is the amount of matter in an object.

Matter is anything that has mass and volume (takes up space.)
Inertia
Newton’s first law of motion (aka, The Law of Inertia) states that
"an object at rest remains at rest and an object will remain in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force."
freebodydiagram
Free Body Diagrams: a standard diagram that shows all of the forces acting on an object.
The object is a box at the center with arrows pointing towards it from the direction of each force.
newton
Scientist

Isaac Newton was a mathematical genius who invented new types of math related to motion and forces. Evidence suggests that he may have had a form of autism.

Technical Drawings: communicate the measurements of things we build.

pugh
Technology

Pugh Charts: are used to check if a design meets the specifications (requirements) of a design.
Usually used to compare designs (columns) against each specification (rows.)
