Physical ScienceMatter and MotionThis topic focuses on the study of foundational concepts of the particulate nature of matter, linear motion, and kinetic and potential energy.
- Matter is made up of small particles called atoms.
- Changes of state are explained by a model of matter composed of particles that are in motion.
- There are two categories of energy: kinetic and potential.
- An object’s motion can be described by its speed and the direction in which it is moving.
