Description:

Investigate the effect of gravity on objects of various mass during free fall. Predict what the position-time and velocity-time graphs will look like. Compare graphs for light and heavy objects. Was Galileo Right is the last of five SmartGraphs activities designed for a typical physical science unit of study on the motion of objects.

CCSS.Math.Practice.MP4: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Model with mathematics.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.G.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.C.9: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.
