###
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.

###
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.

###
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.

###
7 Chapter 9: Special Topics

In this chapter, we present several special topics that may arise in the study of physics.

###
6 Chapter 10: Equipment and Experiments

In this chapter, we demonstrate the use of various laboratory equipment.

###
11 OnTRACK Grade 8 Math: Proportionality

Students learn to to use proportional relationships to describe dilation; explain proportional and non-proportional relationships involving slope; and use proportional and non-proportional relationships to develop foundational concepts of functions.

###
Gravitational Force

This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning activities for students learning about the gravitational attraction between objects of different masses at different distances. IPC TEKS (4)(F)

###
3.02 Average Speed and Average Velocity

In this video, we explore the difference between speed and velocity, and their relationship to distance and displacement.

###
3.03 Kinematic Equations in One Dimension

In this video, we introduce the three primary kinematics equations and apply them to one-dimensional problems. The term "acceleration" is also introduced.

###
3.04 Kinematic Equations Graphical Analysis

In this video, we analyze hypothetical experiments by graphing position, velocity, and acceleration versus time, qualitatively.

###
3.05 Kinematic Equations in Two Dimensions

In this video, we apply the three primary kinematic equations to projectile motion problems.

###
3.06 Relative Motion

In this video, the inherent (classical) relativity of velocity measurements is explored, qualitatively and quantitatively, in both one and two dimensions.

###
3.01 Distance and Displacement

In this video, we explore the difference between distance traveled (an example of a scalar) and displacement (an example of a vector), and we review some basic vector math.

###
Newton's Law of Inertia

This resource provides instructional resources for Newton's First Law, the law of inertia.
