Forces and Motion

Newtons first law of motion states that "An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force." This concept can be introduced at a very young age through simple experiments in the classroom. Force is a fundamental aspect of the physical sciences. We all experience the effects of forces and motion at every moment of our lives. For example, we are quite familiar with motion of vehicles and objects in free-fall on a daily basis. Motion plays a central role in every observable event. It helps to explain how things start, move and stop. Here you'll find physics and science resources to teach these important concepts. From springs to pulleys to weights and balances, you'll find it all here.
