The SLIDER curriculum is comprised of two units that together develop standards from all three of the NGSS dimensions: practices, cross-cutting concepts, and core ideas. The main science concept focus of Unit 1 is Energy (e.g., transfer of mechanical energy, kinetic and potential energy relationship, law of conservation of energy). Unit 2 focuses on Force and Motion (e.g., force, balance of forces, changes in motion, speed, acceleration, mass and inertia relationship).

Below you will find a sample sections from both Units.  These sample sections will give you a better idea of how each section is constructed.

Unit 1: Sample - Section 1.4 

Unit 2: Sample -Section  2.8
