(2001-2002 School Year)
Suggestions for this week's quiz
(Unit 1, Quiz#2):
If are reading this page, you are at the right spot. The
Studying Suggestions page should be your starting point for
quiz preparation. The Studying Suggestions will often
provide more specific information about your upcoming quiz
than merely looking at a quiz from the 1994 or 1997 school
year. It is recommended that you always start the review
process by reading this page.
This week's quiz is
tentatively scheduled for Friday, September 7. The quiz will
be a one-page 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 problem-types to be assessed on this quiz:
- An ability to determine the acceleration
value of an object if given velocity-time data or
information. (See pp. 11-12)
- An ability to associate verbal descriptions of motion
representations and numerical representations. (See
- An understanding of the acceleration
concept as a rate at which velocity changes. See
Minds On Physics -
Kinematic Concepts module; sublevel 4.
- An ability to use graphical features such as slope
and shape to interpret position-time
graphs and ultimately describe the motion of an
object. See Minds On
Physics - Kinematic Graphing module; sublevels 1-3.
(See pp. 15-22 and pp. 33-34)
- An ability to perform slope
calculations for position-time graphs and to use such
calculations to derive quantitative information about an
object's motion.. (See pp. 15-22 and pp. 33-34)
- An ability to match graphical descriptions of motion
descriptions of motion (and vice versa). (See pp.
13-22 and pp. 33-34)
- An ability to identify the direction
of the acceleration vector (east, west, north, south,
positive, negative, etc.) if given a verbal description
of the motion. See Minds
On Physics - Kinematic Concepts module; sublevel 4.
(See p. 6)
The following two quizzes are samples of the types of
quizzes given in the past. While this year's quiz might be
similar to these or even contain identical questions, a
student should not expect that this year's quiz will be
exactly the same as those from the past.
