This 42 slide PowerPoint presentation covers 10 questions on the topics of acceleration, calculating acceleration, and graphing acceleration (speed-time graphs).
Main points include: acceleration, what type of motion acceleration refers to, calculating acceleration (including a few examples), how acceleration is expressed, negative acceleration, graphing acceleration, and interpreting acceleration (speed-time) graphs.
Simple and easy to use. Can be used with Cornell notes. Great for middle school or introductory high school courses. As always, I try to include as many images as possible for relevant examples.
If you like these notes, you can follow these links to other lessons and activities in my motion and forces units.
