BHS -> Mr. Stanbrough -> Physics -> Mechanics -> Newton's Laws -> Newton's First Law -> Terms & Objectives -> this page

## Background:

The Indiana Academic Standards 2000 for Physics I contain two standards and four supporting themes. The standards are:

• Standard 1: The Principles of Physics
• Standard 2: Historical Perspectives of Physics

The supporting themes are:

• The Nature of Science and Technology
• Scientific Thinking
• The Mathematical World
• Common Themes

## Standard 1: The Principles of Physics

• The Properties of Matter
• P.1.2 Measure or determine the physical quantities including mass, ..., volume, ... and density of an object or unknown sample.
• P.1.4 Employ correct units in describing common physical quantities.
• The Relationships Between Motion and Force
• P.1.5 Use appropriate vector and scalar quantities to solve kinematics and dynamics problems in one and two dimensions.
• P.1.7 Use Newton's Laws (e.g. F = ma) together with the kinematics equations to predict the motion of an object.

Standard 2: Historical Perspectives of Physics

• P.2.1 Explain that Isaac Newton created a unified view of force and motion in which motion everywhere in the universe can be explained by the same few rules.
• P.2.2 Describe how Newton’s system was based on the concepts of mass, force, and acceleration; his three laws of motion relating to them; ... .
