Physics Models

  • G.1(A)  I treat vectors and scalars differently and distinguish between the two.
  • G.2(A) I can manipulate vectors (break a vector into components and add them).
  • G.3(A) I report answers with a reasonable amount of precision, given the measurements provided.
  • G.4(A) I report answers using the correct units.
  • DCG .1(A) I understand and can identify the difference between independent, dependent, and controlled variables.
  • DCG .2(A) I can achieve a reasonable amount of precision in my measurements and know how to identify (and deal with) "bad data".
  • DCG .3(A) I can construct and clearly label/annotate data tables according to the guidelines discussed in class.
  • DCG .4(B) I can graph experimental data according to the guidelines discussed in class.
  • DCG .5(B) Given a formal data table or graph, I can identify and describe relationships between variables.
Constant Velocity Particle Model (CVM)
  • CVM.1(A) I can draw and interpret diagrams to represent the motion of an object moving with a constant velocity.
  • CVM.2(B)  I understand and can use the following vocabulary: position, distance, displacement, average speed, average velocity, scalar, vector, qualitative, quantitative.
  • CVM.3(B) I can solve problems using the constant velocity particle model.
