Suggestions for this week's Quiz
(Unit 1, Quiz #2):
This week's quiz is scheduled for
Friday, September 11. 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:
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 sketch a
position-time graph if given a velocity-time graph (and
- An ability to match graphical
descriptions of motion with verbal and pictorial
descriptions of motion (and vice versa).
- 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.
- An understanding of previous
concepts from the first
