Exploring the science concepts in force and motion leads teachers to a deeper understanding that will help them engage students in their own explorations. Science and education experts guide teachers through essential topics including gravity, friction, air resistance, magnetism, and tension.
Extensive footage shot in real classrooms shows students learning and building on ideas as they explore the relationships among motion, force, size, mass, and speed. Teachers are compelled to think about their own ideas on force and motion as they watch the students develop understanding through activities that connect science concepts to real-world phenomena.
