**Newton's Laws of Motion (part 1)**

Start by watching Commander Garvin's introductory video to Newton's Laws of Motion.

We are now ready to begin exploring some of the science and mathematics that make rocketry possible. Today, you will be learning about Sir Isaac Newton and his three laws of motion. Although he was a scientist and mathematician who lived and worked in the late 1600's and early 1700's, his Universal Law of Gravitation and 3 Laws of Motion are still used today to help explain many parts of aerospace engineering.

As an introduction to the three laws of motion you will be reading information from a website, engaging in a digital breakout, and completing the graphic organizer "Rocket Principles-Newton's Laws". Please download Download Rocket Principles- Newton's Law graphic orgaanizer before you begin so you can take notes and write down information as you read, watch video clips, and work through the digital breakout. As soon as you have this sheet, you may move to the first step.

1) Use the following link to access the website Rocket Principles from NASA's Glenn Research Center.

2) Read the article and take notes on your graphic organizer.

3) Use the following link to access the digital breakout on Newton's Laws of Motion and calculating the height of a rocket Breakout. This week you will complete only the first lock, this is the lock about Newton's 1st Law. Please do not go to the information on locks 2-5 yet; we will be working on those in the next couple of weeks. As you work on lock 1, make sure to read all of the information on the breakout carefully and watch all videos in their entirety. Don't forget to add to your graphic organizer as you work through the breakout. Also, write down the answers to the locks you solve and keep them in a secret place in your notebook; that way, if you have to enter them again, you will already have your answers written down.

4) Make sure you have completed the graphic organizer "Rocket Principles-Newton's Laws." We will be going over it in an upcoming Zoom meeting. Take a picture or screenshot that proves you have broken out of the 1st lock and upload it to the Newton's Laws of Motion (Part 1) assignment in Edmodo.

5) If you have finished the graphic organizer & broken the 1st lock, and would like to learn more, you might enjoy watching the following videos on Newton's Laws of Motion and Universal Law of Gravitation.

**Newton's Laws of Motion (part 2)**

Today we will be taking a closer look at Newton's 2nd and 3rd laws. Not only will we learn more about them, we will also explore how the quantify Newton's second law by working rocketry related math problems.

1) If you would like to review Newton's 2nd and 3rd Laws of Motion, look above and watch the resource videos I provided last week.

2) Now that you remember the 2nd and 3rd laws, let's get started on some rocketry math. First, download and print Download Flying High Notes so you can work the problems with me in the following instructional videos. Please take notes and write every problem we do together so you will have help when you work on the assessment. Once you have the notes page printed out, please watch the two videos.

3) Once you have taken notes and understand these problems, download and print out the assessment Download Flying High- F=MA problems Work the problems and then fill in the answers on this Google Doc https://forms.gle/2Jd1ZeMEahDPUqcu5

Remember, although I always tell you to write your units in math problems, don't do it on this Google Doc. It is too difficult to enter units like m/s^{2 }so the answer key is set up for numbers only. If the answer has a decimal, give the numerals 2 places after the decimal and do not round.

4) Now it's time to return to the digital breakout on Newton's Laws of Motion and calculating the height of a rocket Breakout. This week, you will need to break out of locks 2 &3. Please do not go to the information on locks 4-5 yet; we will be working on those in the next couple of weeks. As you work on locks 2 & 3, make sure to read all of the information on the breakout carefully and watch all videos in their entirety. Also, write down the answers to the locks you solve and keep them in a secret place in your notebook; that way, if you have to enter them again, you will already have your answers written down. When you break out of the 3rd lock, take a screenshot and upload it to Edmodo on the Digital Breakout Lock 2 & 3 assignment.
