This zip file package contains materials which can be used to construct a complete unit on Speed, Velocity, and Acceleration. It includes an interactive completion notes/PowerPoint presentation, worksheets, quizzes, a lab and more. Documents that are not in PowerPoint have been saved in both word and pdf format to allow easy viewing, printing and editing for teacher needs.
The specific contents of this unit are as follows:
-- Motion Completion Notes (6 pages) (topics include speed, velocity, acceleration, centripetal motion and momentum) with associated PowerPoint (17 slides)
-- Speed, Velocity and Acceleration Quiz (20 questions on 4 pages) with answer key
-- Motion Practice Test for students (25 questions on 3 pages) with key
-- Speed, Velocity, and Frames of Reference Worksheet (2 pages) with key
-- Acceleration worksheet (1 page) with key
-- 5 page physical science laboratory activity on velocity and acceleration. Students are asked to do set up an inclined plane at varying angles and then using simple materials determine the velocity and acceleration of the object rolling down the incline. The students are required to graph and infer relationships from their data. The activity also makes connections to Galileo's classic experiment involving different masses and gravity.
Answer keys and documents in both word and pdf format are also included. The lab has been correlated to the appropriate Next Generation Science Standards, as well as the corresponding performance indicators of the New York State Intermediate Level Science curriculum.
