Newton’s Triple Play: Baseball Science

Detailed Information

In this lesson, students watch a video and animations that relate Isaac Newton’s three laws of motion to baseball and apply what they’ve learned about these laws to another sport or other real-life situation. During the lesson, students complete three formative online assessments—one for each law—and a summative review, in which students fill out a chart by matching descriptions to each law. At the end of the lesson, students produce a media project write an essay that demonstrates their understanding of these fundamental physical science principles.
