## What is minds in Motion?

Minds in Motion® is a community-based social program that incorporates physical and mental stimulation for people with early to mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia and their care partners.

### What are the activities you do at home that shows force?

Demonstrations and Experiments for Learning About Force and Motion

• Set up Dominoes.
• Race Cars Down a Ramp.
• Make a Mousetrap Car.
• Do an Egg Drop Activity.
• Make a Catapult.
• Make a Rube Goldberg Machine.
• Make a Marshmallow Shooter.
• Make a Balancing Robot.

What is force and motion examples?

Out on the playground you can see even bigger and better examples of force and motion. Climbing, jumping, running, chasing, throwing, and sliding all use force and motion.

How does motion take place in walking?

Whenever people walk, their foot exerts a force on the ground. The ground then exerts an equal force which points in the opposite direction. It is this force (force due to friction) that allows the person to move forward.

## How do you introduce the topic motion?

Motion is mathematically described in terms of displacement, distance, velocity, acceleration, speed, and time. The motion of a body is observed by attaching a frame of reference to an observer and measuring the change in position of the body relative to that frame with change in time.

### What is the importance of motion in our daily activities?

Movement is a vital nutrient to your body, just as much as food, water or oxygen. It feeds the brain, producing essential nutrient stimulation (called proprioception).

What is motion give some examples of motion in daily life?

The examples of motion include: running, cycling, jumping, swimming, eating, drinking, playing, writing, typing, moving cars, throwing ball. The examples of rest include: sleeping, sitting, standing, staring, lying, a fixed clock, bottle kept on a table, a stopped car.

How does motion take place swimming?

Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Thus, swimmers must stroke downward in the water to stay afloat and propel forward. This movement is equal and opposite to the force the water exerts against the swimmer to stop them from moving.

## How does motion take place in jumping?

A jump from a plié at rest position is less effective then a jump moving into and out of the plié in one smooth motion. Jumps can also be performed with horizontal motion. These moves produce trajectories, or paths of motion through space. Many forces come into play here including friction and gravity.
