Product Description
A great activity to serve as in introduction to acceleration! Field-tested with hundreds of students and years in the classroom, designed to get maximum results with minimum time invested for both student and teacher!

This activity contains 19 questions designed to help students understand the basic concepts of acceleration, including taking direction into account. Problems use a wide variety of situations and descriptions to engage students. Multiple choice problems contain distractors designed to capitalize on common student errors.

I prefer to teach this consistently using vf = vi + at, but many students like to use the equation a = Δv / t. This can be exploited by having students incorrectly calculate the change in velocity (most often a negative becomes a positive if they do it 'in their head'). This worksheet exposes that and other weaknesses in students' work.

Correlates with standards and questions on the New York State Regents Exam in Physics. Also aligns strongly with many other standardized test questions in linear motion (AP Physics 1/2, SAT II Physics).



Activities:
- Solving vf = vi + at for all variables
- Correctly accounting for direction in problems
- Verbally distinguishing between acceleration and velocity

Contents:
- 11 short answer questions
- 8 multiple choice questions
- Activity comes in PDF format, ensuring for accurate reprints
