Product Description

Unit 2 - Basic Motion - Whole Unit includes the following files:

2.1 Distance & Displacement Notes

Covers the difference between these two commonly misunderstood measurements and how to calculate them. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.1 Distance & Displacement Practice

Students practice finding an object's distance and displacement based on a picture or description of the object's movements. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.1 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint

Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

2.1 PowerPoint Notes

Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

2.2 Speed Notes

Covers the definition and method for calculating speed. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.2 Speed Practice

Students practice calculating an object's speed and using the correct unit to label their answer. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.2 Speed Lab

Students answer the question "Do men or women drive with a greater speed when they pass your school?" by timing passing cars and calculating their speed. This lab follows the scientific method as taught in Lesson 1.3.

This document contains 4 word problems requiring students to find an object's speed, distance, or time. Pass them out one at a time, have each person in a group of 4 solve the same problem, shuffle and redistribute them. Then read the answer aloud and have students raise their hand if the paper they are holding has the correct answer. A quick way to see how students are catching on without putting them on the spot.

2.2 Walk to School Activity

This activity is much like a lab, although I don't call it that because it does not follow the scientific process. It is more like a hands-on practice sheet. Students use Google Maps and a quick experiment to determine what time they should leave their house if they are to walk to school and get there on time.

2.2 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint

Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

2.2 PowerPoint Notes

Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

2.3 Velocity Notes

Covers the definition and method for calculating velocity. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.3 Velocity and Speed Practice

Students practice calculating an object's distance, displacement, speed, and velocity and comparing these measurements to each other. A great review of everything covered in Unit 2 to this point. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.3 Velocity and Speed Whiteboard Practice

This PowerPoint includes three pictures, each requiring students to find an object's distance, displacement, speed, and velocity. Have students write their answers on a whiteboard. At the end, students are asked to think about the differences between the measurements and under what circumstances they might be equal.

2.3 Velocity Practice Stations

This document includes 6 stations with 2 velocity questions each. The pages can be stapled to a manila folder and propped up. The answer page goes under the question page for students to check their answers. Have students use whiteboards to answer each question to add a little fun.

2.3 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint

Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

2.3 PowerPoint Notes

Notes in PowerPoint format to make presentation to the class a breeze.

2.4 Position vs. Time Graph Notes

Covers how to give meaning to a position vs. time graph and how slope is related to velocity. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.4 Position vs. Time Graphs Practice

Students practice reading and creating position vs. time graphs. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.4 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint

Learning objectives and sample starter questions for the topic.

2.4 PowerPoint Notes

2.5 Acceleration Notes

Covers the definition and method of calculating an object's acceleration, the difference between positive and negative acceleration, and the types of units used to express acceleration. This notes sheet comes with an (A) version that has blanks for students to fill out as well as a completed (B) version for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.5 Acceleration Practice

Students practice calculating an object's acceleration based on word problems. This practice sheet comes with an (A) version to be used for the majority of students as well as a shorter and/or different (B) version to be used for students who are absent or may require accommodations.

2.5 Acceleration Lab

Students answer the question "What affect does increasing the height of the ramp have on the cart’s acceleration?" by using technology to measure a cart's speed and calculating its acceleration. This lab follows the scientific method as taught in Lesson 1.3.

Note: this lab is written specifically to be used with Frey Scientific’s CPO Science equipment but can be adapted to fit what you have available in your classroom.

This document contains 4 word problems requiring students to find an object's acceleration. Pass them out one at a time, have each person in a group of 4 solve the same problem, shuffle and redistribute them. Then read the answer aloud and have students raise their hand if the paper they are holding has the correct answer. A quick way to see how students are catching on without putting them on the spot.

2.5 Objectives & Starter Questions PowerPoint

Binder Divider - Unit 2

This page can be printed and trimmed along the edge slightly to make a helpful binder divider. I find that these dividers for each unit help students stay organized.

Metric Units Review Card Game - Unit 2

The card game is intended to be played with partners but led by the teacher. Cards are printed two-sided, with a unit on the front and a letter on the back. There is a different set for each partner. The teacher gives a type of measurement like "acceleration" and students must pick their card that has a unit used for acceleration. If they both guess correctly, the letters on the back of their cards will match. A great way to review the many types of units covered in this unit.

Whiteboard Review - Unit 2

This PowerPoint presentation contains questions from all lessons in this unit. Have students grab a whiteboard and answer the questions or make it into a game like "Head of the Class" for a great review before the test.

Unit Test - Unit 2

This test includes matching, free response, calculation, graphing, and multiple choice questions covering the entire unit.

Recovery Quiz - Unit 2

This short recovery quiz gives students an opportunity to recover from a poor test score. The quiz includes the most commonly-missed questions from my experience. I have all students take the quiz and give them 1/2 point per question back on their test score up to 100%.

NOTE: all files are editable .docx or .pptx documents that you can tailor to fit your classroom
