[PS2] Motion and Stability: Forces and Interaction

SCI-03.PS2.02 Make observations and metric measurements of an object's motion to prove that a pattern can be used to predict future motion

Clarification Statement: Examples of motion with a predictable pattern could include a child swinging in a swing, a ball rolling back and forth in a bowl, and two children on a see-saw.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
The patterns of an object’s motion in various situations can be observed and measured; when that past motion exhibits a regular pattern, future motion can be predicted from it. (Boundary: Technical terms, such as magnitude, velocity, momentum, and vector quantity, are not introduced at this level, but the concept that some quantities need both size and direction to be described is developed.)
