Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson.

Force is important in our daily life. We use it in all of our activities like walking on the road, lifting objects, throwing a ball, or moving objects to a particular direction. We use force in order for us to live and we apply it to different objects around us.
In this module, you will learn more about force and will know what happens to objects as force is applied to them. For you to learn these concepts, you will be performing exercises and activities which will enable you to explain the effects of force when applied to objects.
The lesson focuses on:
- Lesson 1 – Explain the Effects of Force when applied to an Object
After going through this lesson, you are expected to be able to:
1. determine the changes that happen to objects when force is applied to them; and
2. explain the effects of force on the shape, size and movement of objects.
