that introduces acceleration calculations
through a set of 10 advanced word problems.
provides a summary of how to use the linear acceleration formula , a description of the 4 required elements that each solution should include for full points, as well as an example question and complete answer.
feature 10 leveled word problems
, equally divided between solving for acceleration (a), time (T), and velocity (V) variables. Two of the word problems involves metric conversions and are clearly identified for students.
feature a full color-coded answer key
that can be used by the teacher alone, displayed to students on a screen/interactive white board, or handed out to students who have completed the document.
