Motion and Collisions. A Supplement to the "Science 100, 101" Curriculum Guide. Curriculum Support Series.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
The tables, graphs, articles, and other sources of information in this document are designed to provide teachers with additional resources to supplement the unit "Motions and Collisions." The information is coordinated with the unit objectives specified in "Science 100, 101," the currently (1982) approved provincial guide for grade 10 science in Manitoba schools. General content areas include: (1) first and second collisions; (2) safety features related to seat belts; (3) injuries related to belted and unbelted passengers; and (4) pros and cons of seatbelt laws. No particular instructional strategy is fostered and, in some instances, teachers may wish to extend the unit beyond the design in the curriculum guide. For example, the paper which relates seat belt legislation to safety ("The Effects of Seat Belt Legislation: The Saskatchewan Experience") could be used to examine the uncertainty of relating data in a one-to-one relationship between two variables, such as safety and the use of seat belts, or could be used as an additional source of information for students.
