# Lesson Plan: Linear Momentum Mathematics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to calculate the momentum of a particle moving in a straight line using the formula 𝐻 = 𝑚𝑣.

#### Objectives

Students will be able to

• calculate the momentum of a particle given its mass and velocity using the formula ,
• calculate the momentum of a particle given the information required to calculate its mass and velocity (this includes using the equations of motion to calculate unknown values),
• calculate change in momentum given an initial and final velocity,
• calculate the change in momentum for a particle between two times given its acceleration and mass.

#### Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

• the equations of motion (SUVAT equations),
• vectors,
• differentiation and integration to relate displacement, velocity, and acceleration.

#### Exclusions

Students will not cover

• relating impulse and change in momentum,
• conservation of momentum and collisions,
• variable mass.
