# Standards Addressed

- The motion of an object can be described by its position, direction of motion, and speed. That motion can be
measured and represented on a graph. (NSES p154, grades 5-8)
- Laws of motion are used to calculate precisely the effects of forces on the motion of objects. The magnitude
of the change in motion can be calculated using the relationship F=ma, which is independent of the nature of
the force. (NSES p 179, grades 9-12)
- Graphs can show a variety of possible relationships between two variables. (BSL 9B/M3, grades 6-8)
- Tables, graphs, and symbols are alternative ways of representing data and relationships that can be translated
from one to another. (BSL 9B/H4, grades 9-12)
- Differentiate among translational motion, simple harmonic motion, and rotational motion in terms of position,
velocity, and acceleration. (PA 3.2.P.B1)
