Developed by JASON Learning — in partnership with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the National Geographic Society, and NOAA — Forces and Motion: Terminal Velocity invites students to explore how the laws of physics affect their world. Students work alongside leading researchers to examine the role of measurements and standards in everyday life, investigate car crashes, and design rovers to explore other planets. Physics is the study of matter and energy. The laws of physics not only govern how matter and energy relate to one another, but also help us to engineer technologies to make our lives easier. An important step in understanding the laws of physics is learning what role forces and motion play in the universe. Forces and Motion: Terminal Velocity explains key concepts related to forces and motion — including measurement tools and techniques, speed, velocity, acceleration, momentum, Newton’s Laws, fluid dynamics, work, power, and simple and complex machines — in an engaging and exciting format. With 142 pages of breathtaking, full-color images, Forces and Motion: Terminal Velocity is sure to captivate curious minds. JASON Learning curricula are designed to be incorporated into upper elementary, middle school, and high school classrooms and other formal and informal learning environments. Content is rigorously aligned to national and state science standards as well as Common Core mathematics and English language arts standards. In addition to the engaging reading selections and integration of real-world scientists and their work, all JASON curricula include hands-on activities and labs that can be performed easily with limited resources. Optional JASON Online Access (purchased separately) brings content to life with a host of additional features on JASON’s website including read-to-me functionality, on-demand videos, and award-winning interactive games.
Student Editions contain all student reading selections, labs and field investigations. One book per student recommended. Current online subscription to JASON is required for purchase (sold separately).
