New Physics Curriculum

New school year, new State science framework, so new physics curriculum. Here's the first iteration, a model unit in 3 steps: 1) identify the forces in an interaction, 2) identify what is transferred/transformed due to the interaction, 3) construct/manipulate a model of the interaction. That's it! Now apply this three-step model to the handful of physics topics/applications as dictated by the State. Don't forget to take advantage of the flow of certain concepts and processes through similar/related topics.
