Granville Boys High School
Make It Move
Students learn about forces and how forces act as well as predict unbalanced forces in everyday situations. They describe some everyday examples of technological design that reduce impact on forces. They look at friction, everyday situations where it operates, and investigate factors that influence the size and effect of friction forces. Students use the term ‘field’ in describing forces acting at a distance such as gravity and how it pulls objects towards the centre of Earth as well as how it acts in everyday situations. Students also learn to contrast the terms ‘mass’ and ‘weight’.
Students apply knowledge and understandings learnt in science and mathematics and create a vehicle in a practical workshop. They work collaboratively to produce a vehicle suitable to race at the end of the term.
