graphing skills / slope and y-intercept
best fit line / deriving relationships in Sciences
(take 5 lines per page)
how to use the TI, best fit line
(optional, depends on level)
Hooke's law application linear relationship /
from Copernicus to Newton - motion in heaven
Kinematics 1 -
applying graphing skills to derive
kinematics; equations. relationships between
displacement, velocity and acceleration.
Kinematics 2 - more on acceleration and
graphing motion. deriving the equations of motion also called the " big five" .
How to use them.
kinematics3 - Free-fall
lab: Galileo and kinematics
principle of inertia / equilibrum / forces
Newton's 1st law : Introduction to Newtons'
3 laws - Inertia -
forces, frictional FORCES (+ air resistance)
concept of forces revisited, balanced forces
