Physics concepts and their use through technology are explored when students delve into questions such as how do we use forces to make vehicle crashes survivable?

Problem solving, experiments and activities help students develop conceptual understanding of force and motion through the context of technologies used for road safety and safe stopping. 

This series of lessons matches achievement objectives at Level 5 of Science – Physical World in The New Zealand Curriculum.

Internal assessment resource for:

Achievement Standard 90936: Demonstrate understanding of the physics of an application.

Students prepare a report on the physics involved in applications for crash avoidance or crash protection and explain how the phenomenon works in this context. This is a Quality Assured Assessment Material certified by NZQA.
