Newton's Laws Project
You will be completing research about Newton's Laws. At the completion of this project, you will present your findings to the rest of the class.
You will team up in groups of 3 or 4. One person should be an expert for each of Newton's three laws and then if there is a 4th person they will be the team coordinator and editor.
You will create a multimedia presentation (PowerPoint, Google Presentation, web page, or video) about each of Newton's laws and what they mean. Your presentation should be done so that someone with no physics knowledge could understand the 3 laws after viewing the presentation.
Below are some links to sites to get you started.
And, of course, you should use the class web site as a resource.
The rubric for PowerPoint presentations is found here:
