We began with using reference points to write directions to our lockers and spent a week learning the math associated with calculating the speed of various objects, velocity, and acceleration. 

We made free-body diagrams to illustrate the effects of forces on motion, too.  We designed our own friction labs to develop some "rules" for understanding the relationship between the factors that affect the sliding friction force on objects. 

So, this week we are ready to master Newton's Laws of Motion and apply them to building our mouse-trap powered cars.
