Abstract

Newton’s laws of motion is one of difficult topics in junior secondary lessons. Many students encounter difficulties in understanding the relationship between phenomena and principles. Through various experiments, it cannot only help students grasp scientific concepts but also arouse students’ interests in learning science. The following experiments demonstrate how junior secondary school teachers can teach the students about inertia and reaction. Copyright © 2002 The Hong Kong Institute of Education.
