This is the Target Group Menu for a group of targets from the Science Framework for Planning
Group 31  Force & Gravity
This way for Group 32 - Biotechnology

What is gravity?  If the forces on an object are balanced, how would you describe its movements or otherwise? Similarly, what, if any, are the movement if the forces are unbalanced? What are the differences or otherwise between the mass & weight of an identical object on Earth and other planets? What is the relationship between force, area and pressure?
CfE (Forces and Motion) (Level Second) - SCN 223L - Using my understanding of forces, I can test ideas about safety design features in vehicles and use my results in an innovative safe design.
CfE (Forces and Motion) (Level Third) - SCN 313L - I have carried out activities to investigate the effect of gravity on objects and can describe its effects to others. I can predict what might happen in different situations on Earth and in space.
CfE (Planet Earth - Climate & Earth Science) (Level Third) - SCN 305D - By applying my knowledge of matter, I can explain air pressure and the consequences of its change in a variety of contexts.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Third) - SCN 332BB - Through research and group discussion, I have contributed to an evaluation of a media item with regard to its scientific content.

CfE (Forces and Motion) (Level Fourth) - SCN 422L Phys - I can use appropriate methods to measure the speed of an object, and show how the data can be presented and analysed graphically. I can show how these methods are applied in, for example, competitive sport. 
CfE (Forces and Motion) (Level Fourth) - SCN 423L Phys - I can relate the motion of an object to the forces acting on it, making accurate and quantitative measurements and carrying out calculations. I can apply this knowledge, for example to explain how responsible behaviour and safe vehicle design can help reduce accidents.
CfE (Forces and Motion) (Level Fourth) - SCN 425L Phys - I have explored the relationship between mass and volume, and as part of a team I can use my knowledge to solve a challenging problem related to density.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Fourth) - SCN 443BB ALL - I have researched a new development in science and can show how its current or future application might impact on modern life.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Fourth) - SCN 444BB ALL - Having selected a scientific theme of topical interest, I can critically analyse the issues, and use relevant information to develop an informed argument.
