The first Unit 6 quiz might be on Wednesday, November 20. The quiz
will
be at least a onepage quiz, covering both sides of the sheet of paper. The average speed and
acceleration equation will be given; you will be responsible for any
other equations. 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. See Minds
On Physics  Kinematic Concepts module; sublevels 3 and 6.
 Speed
and Velocity 
 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. See Minds
On Physics 
Kinematic Concepts module; sublevels 13.
 Scalars
and Vectors  Distance
and Displacement  Speed and Velocity
 Acceleration

 An understanding of the acceleration concept as a
rate at which velocity changes; an ability to identify the direction of
the acceleration vector; and an ability to use the equation for
acceleration to arrive at a solution to a simple problem. See Minds
On Physics

Kinematic Concepts module; sublevels 4 and 7.
 Acceleration

 An ability to associate verbal descriptions of motion
with pictorial representations and numerical representations.
See Minds
On Physics

Kinematic Concepts module; sublevels 5 and 8.
 Ticker
Tape Diagrams  Vector
Diagrams 
 An ability to use graphical features such as slope
and shape to interpret positiontime graphs and ultimately describe the
motion of an object. See Lab K4.
