The basis of all scientific research is the Scientific Method. Students need a strong foundation in the steps of this method. One of the goals of this unit is to provide an understanding of the scientific method. The other goals are to encourage an understanding of everyday forces and determination of work/no work in a situation. These are basic physics concepts that are a part of the 7th grade Science TEKS. Students will incorporate their knowledge of the scientific method and create an experimental investigation focused on an everyday force.
