Newton’s first law of motion tutorial is effectively explained how a force is needed to overcome inertia (the tendency to resist any change in motion). Newton’s second law tutorial gives more concrete and mathematical descriptions and demonstrations of what happens when an unbalanced force actually does act upon an object. In the second tutorial, I found it extremely helpful how the tutorial began with the spaceship simulation activity. I felt this simulation will be an easy and effective way to “hook” students’ inquiry of the second law. This is a great way for students to learn it, manipulate it, and verbalize it in their own terms!
