TEKS Covered
(4) Science concepts. The student knows concepts of force and motion evident in everyday life. The
student is expected to:
(A) describe and calculate an object's motion in terms of position, displacement, speed, and
acceleration;
(B) measure and graph distance and speed as a function of time
(C) investigate how an object's motion changes only when a net force is applied, including
activities and equipment such as toy cars, vehicle restraints, sports activities, and classroom
objects;
(D) assess the relationship between force, mass, and acceleration, noting the relationship is
independent of the nature of the force, using equipment such as dynamic carts, moving toys,
vehicles, and falling objects;
