Physics School Year Lesson Calender:

Motion
 Analyze and predict position, time, velocity, and acceleration using graphs, motion diagrams and different frames of reference.
 Describe, classify and solve problems that involve circular, projectile, or periodic motion.

Forces
 Analyze the effects of inertia and resistance forces suchas air resistance and friction and their effects on acceleration.
 Solve problems involving force, mass, acceleration, and Newton’s law of gravitation.

Momentum & Impulse
 Apply the law of conservation of momentum to analyzethe motions of systems of objects.
 Solve problems involving momentum and impulse including simple collisions.

Mechanical Energy
 Solve problems involving work, PE, KE and the law of conservation of energy.
 Apply the law of conservation of energy to analyze the motions of systems of objects.

Electricity & Electromagnetism
 Explain how objects are charged in terms of conductionand induction and charge distribution.
 Use electrostatic attraction and repulsion to explain common experiences with charged objects, electrostatiforces and electric current.
 Analyze series and parallel electric circuits in terms of electric current, resistance, voltage, and power.
 Use magnetic repulsion and attraction to explain common experiences with magnets and magnetic objects.
