**- Basic Trigonometric Functions (SOH CAH TOA)**

**- Graphing Practice: straight line (direct variation), hyperbola **

** (inverse variation), and half-parabolas (square variation)**

**- SI units and most common Prefixes**

**- Unit Conversion**

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

** Sets of interactive problems with immediate feedback.**

**ESTIMATED TIME: 2 WEEKS**

**TEACHING RESOURCES:**

**- Constant Velocity Tubes**

**- Acceleration: Galileo’s Experiment**

**- Air Track: Constant Velocity and Uniform Acceleration Graphs**

**- Free-Fall with Motion Sensor**

**- Finding Terminal Velocity using Coffee Filters**

**LAB 2. ****Motion in One Dimension**

**Objective:**** To analyze the motion of objects moving at constant speed **

**and at uniform accelerated motion. Data should be collected to produce **

**a graph of position vs time and use the graph to plot a velocity vs time graph for each object. Slopes and areas are used to calculate: instantaneous velocity, average velocity, displacement, acceleration**

**Equipment:**** A digital camera to record the motion of objects moving at **

**constant speed and with uniform acceleration, LoggerPro 3 .6 to perform **

**video analysis.**

**Type of Lab:**** Open ended**

**- Motion in One-Dimension **

**- Constant Accleration **

**- Graphical Analysis and Vectors**

**PROBLEM SOLVING**

** 23 problems with hints and detailed solutions.**

** Set of 10 interactive problems with immediate feedback.**

** Set of 3 interactive problems with immediate feedback.**

**KEY ITEMS:**

**• Students are often confused by the following terms, be sure to use**

** various examples to clarify their misconceptions:**

**- Instantaneous quantities, i.e. velocity, acceleration**

**- Meaning of positive and negative signs for velocity and acceleration**

**- Average velocity**

**• Perform labs and solve problems involving graphical analysis of motion:**

**- from position-time graphs to velocity-time graphs and viceversa**

**- meaning of slopes and units**

**- meaning of area under the curve and units**

**• Dean Baird's worksheets are very useful for practice:**
