    NOVEMBER UNIT OBJECTIVES

    Central Concept: Newton’s laws of motion and gravitation describe and predict the motion of most objects.

    1.1 Compare and contrast vector quantities (e.g., displacement, velocity, acceleration force, linear momentum) and scalar quantities (e.g., distance, speed, energy, mass, work).

    1.2 Distinguish between displacement, distance, velocity, speed, and acceleration. Solve problems involving displacement, distance, velocity, speed, and constant acceleration.

    1.3 Create and interpret graphs of 1-dimensional motion, such as position vs. time, distance vs. time, speed vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time where acceleration is constant.

    1.4 Interpret and apply Newton’s three laws of motion.

     MATH CONCEPTS:
    Dimensional Analysis, Metrics, Significant Figures, Scientific Notation, Using Formulas to solve problems.

    VELOCITY & ACCELERATION OF A CAR:
    Design an experiment that shows the following:
    Velocity at the half-way mark of a track
    Acceleration at the half-way mark of a track
    Velocity from the half-way mark to the end of the track
    Acceleration from the half-way mark to the end of the track
    Illustration of the set-up
