Learning Objectives

Notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance. Setting up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests.

Learning Outcomes

I can show how magnetic forces can act at a distance away from an object. I can perform a fair test and record the results.
