- Grade 10 Kinematics Learning Goals (see below)
Learners will be able to....
What kinds of long-term independent accomplishments are desired?
- Learners will be able to transition between ‘real world’ and ‘model’ scenarios.
- Learners will understand the importance and power of modeling, as well as its limitations.
- Learners will be able to select and manipulate the equations of physics to solve complex problems.
Learners will understand that...
- The difference between displacement and distance is directionality
- The difference between velocity and speed is directionality
- A change in position is velocity
- A change in velocity is acceleration
- Given any 3 of the following regarding an object: velocity (final and initial), acceleration, time, and distance--the other variables may be determined
- Real-world outcomes may differ from predictions, due to factors which may be difficult to quantify (friction, air resistance, uncertainties in measurement, etc.)
Learners will keep considering...
- How can an object have zero velocity, but non-zero acceleration?
- What do the units of a value tell us?
- What is the acceleration due to gravity?
- How can an observer know if the velocity of an object is changing?
- How can an observer predict the position of an object, if the acceleration and initial velocity is known?
Learners will know…
- Define speed, velocity, acceleration, displacement
- Describe the difference between instantaneous and average speed or velocity
- Distinguish between vectors and scalars
- Describe the effects of friction and air resistance on moving bodies
Learners will be skilled at...
- Identifying variables in a problem, whether expressed or implied
- Plot and interpret speed/time, velocity/time, distance/time, acceleration/time graphs
- Recognize motion for which velocity is constant (uniform) or is not constant (not uniform)
- Solve problems using equations of uniformly accelerated motion
- Calculate and interpret areas under and slopes (gradients) of graphs
