Here is a link to a Google Doc for information, quizzes and solutions for perpendicular vectors.
- How do changes in position, velocity and acceleration allow us to predict the paths of moving objects and systems?
- How do the principles of kinematics influence the development of new mechanical technologies?
- Describe motion in terms of displacement, velocity, acceleration and time
Students will know:
- scalar quantities
- vector quantities
- uniform motion
- uniformly accelerated motion
Students will be able to:
- define, qualitatively and quantitatively, displacement, velocity and acceleration
- define, operationally, and compare and contrast scalar and vector quantities
- explain, qualitatively and quantitatively, uniform and uniformly accelerated motion when provided with written descriptions and numerical and graphical data
- interpret, quantitatively, the motion of one object relative to another, using displacement and velocity vectors
- explain, quantitatively, two-dimensional motion in a horizontal or vertical plane, using vector components
- identify common applications of kinematics
- analyze free fall
- investigate the application of kinematics principles
- formulate questions about observed relationships and plan investigations of questions, ideas, problems and issues
- conduct investigations into relationships among observable variables and use a broad range of tools and techniques to gather and record data and information
- analyze data and apply mathematical and conceptual models to develop and assess possible solutions
- work collaboratively in addressing problems and apply the skills and conventions of science in communicating information and ideas and in assessing results
