Types of Motion
Students will distinguish between and/or interpret the types of motion.
6 Chapter 3: Kinematics
In this chapter, we analyze the motion of constantly accelerated objects over time in terms of displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
7 Chapter 9: Hypothesis Testing
In this chapter, students will learn how to perform a hypothesis test and interpret its results.
3 Chapter 1: Exploring Data
In this chapter, we introduce statistics, how it is used, and the types of data we come across in real life.
4 Chapter 7: Sampling Distributions
In this chapter, students will describe and model variability using population and sampling distributions.
7 Chapter 8: Confidence Intervals
In this chapter, students will learn how to construct and interpret a confidence interval for a population mean and a population proportion.
5 Chapter 10: Comparing Two Groups
In this chapter, students interpret confidence intervals and the results of hypothesis tests for the difference between two means and the difference between two proportions.
5 Chapter 3: Representing Categorical Data
In this chapter, we explore the different ways to display categorical data and draw conclusions based on the representations.
8 Chapter 2: Data Collection, Sampling, and Experimental Design
In this chapter, we explore various methods of data collection and potential problems that may occur when collecting data.
9 Chapter 6: Probability
In this chapter, students explore probability and random variables.
5 Chapter 6: Waves
In this chapter, we explore the mathematical concept of a wave and show how this concept can be used to accurately describe and predict many natural phenomena.
3 Chapter 7: Static Electricity
In this chapter, we explore how electrically charged particles interact through electrostatic forces and fields.
6 Chapter 4: Representing Quantitative Data
In this chapter, we explore different ways to display quantitative data, and draw conclusions based on the representations.
7 Chapter 11: Exploring Bivariate Data
In this chapter, students explore the relationship between two quantitative variables. Students will analyze scatterplots for strength, direction, and form; interpret the correlation coefficient; determine the line of best fit using least-squares regression; use the line of best fit to make predictions for a value of y given a value of x; interpret the slope and the y-intercept; learn about alternative methods of finding the line of best fit, including the median-median line and the absolute value line; and identify outliers and influential points and their effects on the regression line and correlation coefficient.
6 Chapter 5: Measuring Center and Spread
In this chapter, students will learn multiple measures for center and spread, and will be introduced to the normal distribution and the empirical rule.
3 Chapter 1: Nature of Science and Scientific Ethics
In this chapter, we explore the nature of science itself, including its practice, ethics, and impact.
5 Chapter 2: Tools of Physics
In this chapter, we discuss several ideas and tools that will be helpful in our introductory study of physics.
5 Chapter 4: Newton's Laws and Momentum
In this chapter, we introduce Newton's laws, and then explore the concepts of momentum and conservation of momentum.
7 Chapter 5: Conservation of Energy and Gravitation
In this chapter, we explore a formulation of classical physics in the context of energy rather than force, and we explore the concept of gravitation in more universally applicable detail.
5 Chapter 8: Circuits and Magnetism
In this chapter, students will learn introductory concepts surrounding electricity and magnetism.
