Suggestions for this week's
quest (Unit 1, Quiz #2):
The Unit 1 quest is
tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 16. 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
See a sample quiz.
- An ability to use graphical
features such as slope and shape to interpret
postion-time and velocity-time graphs and ultimately
describe the motion of an object.
- An ability to perform slope and
area calculations for position-time and velocity-time
graphs and to use such calculations to derive
quantitative information about an object's
- An ability to match graphical
descriptions of motion with verbal and pictorial
descriptions of motion (and vice versa).
- An understanding of previous
from the first
