Much of this first lesson does not fall within the Physics curriculum frameworks, but rather as part of the Science & Engineering Practice & Progression Matrix Appendix to the frameworks.
The Practices addressed include:
Practice #1. Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering).
In this unit, "How do you take measurements and manipulate measurements in physics?"
Practice #2. Developing and using models. How can a graph be used as a physical model?
Practice #3. Planning and carrying out investigations. Students will design the investigation given the question & tools.
Practice #4. Analyzing and interpreting data.
Practice #5. Using mathematics and computational thinking.
