Unit 3 - Quiz 1

2014-15 School Year


The first quiz of the Kinematics unit will be taken at the end of class on Monday, December 8 The quiz will address the following objectives:

  1. The student should be able to apply concepts of vectors, scalars, distance, displacement, speed (average and instantaneous) and velocity (average and instantaneous) in order to describe an object's motion..
