MS-PS2-1: Collision Design Solution
Apply Newton’s Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of two colliding objects. (Systems and System Models)
Clarification Statement: Examples of practical problems could include the impact of collisions between two cars, between a car and stationary objects, and between a meteor and a space vehicle.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to vertical or horizontal interactions in one dimension.
The following assessments were created by science teachers hoping to better understand the NGSS. In most cases teachers went from standard to assessment in around an hour. These are drafts and should be used accordingly. Feel free to improve these assessments or contribute to the collection. Learn more about assessment design here.
