Types of Motion
Students will distinguish between and/or interpret the types of motion.
Graphing Proportional Relationships
Given a proportional relationship, students will be able to graph a set of data from the relationship and interpret the unit rate as the slope of the line.
Given a set of data, the student will be able to generate a scatterplot, determine whether the data are linear or non-linear, describe an association between the two variables, and use a trend line to make predictions for data with a linear association.
Writing Geometric Relationships
Given information in a geometric context, students will be able to use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles.
Solutions of Simultaneous Equations
Given a graph of two simultaneous equations, students will be able to interpret the intersection of the graphs as the solution to the two equations.
Comparing and Explaining Transformations
Given rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations, students will be able to develop algebraic representations for rotations, and generalize and then compare and contrast the properties of congruence transformations and non-congruence transformations.
Mean Absolute Deviation
Given a set of data with no more than 10 data points, students will be able to determine and use the mean absolute deviation to describe the spread of the data.
Generalizing about Populations from Random Samples
Given a population with known characteristics, students will be able to use a variety of methods to generate random samples of the same size in order to understand how a random sample is representative of a population.
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)
Evaluating Solutions for Reasonableness
Given problem situations, the student will determine if the solutions are reasonable.
Predicting, Finding, and Justifying Solutions to Problems
Given application problems, the student will use appropriate tables, graphs, and algebraic equations to find and justify solutions to problems.
This resource provides alternative or additional tier-one learning options for students learning about projectile motion—Physics TEKS (4)(C).
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.
