Analyze data to support the claim that Newton's second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.

Unit 1 – Constant Velocity

I CAN draw a motion map for objects moving at a constant speed.

I CAN plot a position vs. time graph for objects moving at a constant speed.

I CAN plot a velocity vs. time graph for objects moving at a constant speed.

I CAN write a sentence or two that describes the motion of objects moving at a constant speed.

I CAN create any of the above four models from any one of the others.

I CAN create a mathematical model that describes the motion of an object moving at a constant speed.

I CAN use picture models, graphical models, mathematical models, and/or verbal models to solve problems involving objects moving at a constant speed.

I CAN define the unit vocabulary terms operationally.

X vs. t graph, object not moving:

X vs. t graph, object moving at constant positive velocity

X vs. t graph, object moving at constant negative velocity

V vs. t graph, object not moving

V vs. t graph, object moving at constant positive velocity

V vs. t graph, object moving at constant negative velocity

Motion maps for all examples of graphs above

Velocity = displacement divided by time

Speed = distance divided by time

Distance Displacement Speed Velocity Time Slope

Constant Linear

The distance an object travels is related to the time it takes to travel, and the speed at which it goes.

Displacement and distance are not the same thing.

If you know two of the three variables (speed, time, and distance), you can predict the third.
