Product Description
This exam is from an honors, high school, trig-based physics course. The textbook in use was: Glencoe, Physics: Principles and Problems, published 2005.

This packet includes:
1) Blank exam in MS Word format so you can add your class information (your name, period of class, school name) and you can edit existing problems or add your own favorite exam questions!
2) Detailed answer key
3) Explanation of grading, as well as suggestions on how to handle low grades

Exam 1 covers chapter 1 (Physics Toolkit):
• Scientific notation
• SI Units
• Unit conversions
• Precision and accuracy in taking measurements
• Significant figures, significant digits
• Graphing lines: making a "best-fit" line, determining the slope from graphed data, extrapolating data, attaching meaning to the graph.
• Recognition of the graphs of variable relationships: inverse, linear, quadratic
• Recognition of the basic equations of variable relationships: inverse, linear, quadratic

In part one in the exam, students are NOT allowed to have calculators. After turning in part one, students receive part two and then may use their calculators. You may choose to make this section a "take home" test if you have time constraints in class and trust your students!

The reasoning behind making the first part of the test with no calculators is to emphasize the usefulness of scientific notation as well as remind students that scientists are always thinking and sometimes have to do a "back of the envelope" calculation and do not have a calculator (Apollo 13, for instance).
The reasoning behind having the second part be open book (which I do not allow later), is to emphasize the importance of taking good notes, having neat (sometimes rewritten) homeworks, and that part of being a good scientist is knowing where and when to look things up.
