Description:

This is a set of homework questions (with answers) developed for use with the PhET simulation "The Moving Man". It assesses student understanding of position, velocity, and acceleration graphs. It was designed to be implemented in cooperative learning groups. Most of the questions are in multiple-choice format, with a few requiring short written responses. Originally developed for use in in large-enrollment classes, this resource is also appropriate for algebra-based high school physics. "The Moving Man" simulation (which must be running to complete this activity) is available from PhET at: The Moving Man.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.C: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent variables.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.C.9: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.A: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Define, evaluate, and compare functions.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.A.1: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.B: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Use functions to model relationships between quantities.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Construct and compare linear, quadratic, and exponential models and solve problems

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.1: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Distinguish between situations that can be modeled with linear functions and with exponential functions.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.A.1b: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Recognize situations in which one quantity changes at a constant rate per unit interval relative to another.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.B: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Interpret expressions for functions in terms of the situation they model

CCSS.Math.Content.HSF-LE.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Interpret the parameters in a linear or exponential function in terms of a context.
