					                                   Newton’s Laws Project

Objectives: to understand Newton’s Laws of Motion, and to demonstrate that understanding
through a poster, comic strip, advertisement, video, or PowerPoint presentation.

Procedure:
   1. Read about Newton’s laws of motion in our text book (Ch. 10).
   2. Fill out the graphic organizer provided.
   3. Design and complete a poster, comic strip, advertisement, video or PowerPoint that
      demonstrates your understanding of each of the three laws. It is acceptable to
      provide three different projects or combine all three laws into one project.

Grading:
You will present your project on Friday, November 6, 2009. If you will be absent that day,
you must turn your project in the day before. You will be graded on your accuracy,
neatness, and creativity. Remember this project is worth 20% of your overall grade for this
trimester.

Newton Project Extra Credit
You may earn extra credit by completing a second Newton project. Again you will produce a
poster, comic strip, advertisement, video or PowerPoint presentation. However, your topic is
Sir Isaac Newton himself!

Procedure:
   1. Research: use your textbook plus two additional sources to find out about Isaac
      Newton. (You must turn in a works sited page listing the sources you used)
      Some questions to consider: Where was he born and raised? What are his most
      important contributions to science? Has he won awards and/or recognition for his
      works? Did he have formal schooling? If so, where? If not, how did he learn about
      science? How has his character aided in his being a successful scientist?
   2. Organize your information and display is as a poster, comic strip, advertisement,
      video, or PowerPoint presentation.

Grading
Your extra credit project is due on Friday, November 6, 2009. If you will be absent that
day, you must turn your project in the day before. You will be graded on accuracy,
neatness, and creativity. You may improve your overall grade up to a half of a letter grade
(5%) if the second project is done exceptionally well. However, if this project is not up to a
high standard, you will earn less points. This will be your only opportunity to complete
extra credit for the first trimester!

   4. Read about Newton’s laws of motion in our text book p. 326.
   5. Fill out the graphic organizer provided.
   6. Find at least two other sources where you can read about Newton’s laws of motion
      and how they are being used in the real world. Provide copies of these sources and
      highlight what you think is important.
   7. Design and complete a poster, comic strip, advertisement, or PowerPoint that
      demonstrates how Newton’s laws of motion have been used in a real-life situation. It is
      acceptable to provide three different projects or combine all three laws into one
      project.

Grading:
You will present your project on Thursday, November 5, 2006. If you will be absent that
