Suggestions for this week's quiz
(Unit 1, Quiz#1):
This week's quiz is
tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, September 1. The quiz
will be a onepage quiz, covering both sides of a single
sheet of paper. The equation for average speed, average
velocity, and average acceleration will be provided. Other
than a calculator, no other helps will be provided
nor allowed. Students can expect the following concepts,
skills, and problemtypes to be assessed on this quiz:
 An understanding of average speed and average
velocity and the ability to carry out an average speed or
average velocity calculation.
 An understanding of the terms scalars
and vectors, displacement
and distance, speed
and velocity, and acceleration
and an ability to apply such terms to the motion of
objects.
 An ability to use the equation
for acceleration to arrive at a solution to a simple
problem.
 An ability to use conversion factors to convert a
specific quantity in one set of units to the same
quantity in a different set of units.
 An understanding of the how
to derive information about the acceleration of an
object if given velocitytime data and vice versa.
 An ability to associate verbal descriptions of motion
with pictorial
representations and numerical representations.
