Chapter 4: Linear Motion 
Pace: 7 class periods

Big IdeaThe universe is in a state of constant change. From small particles (electrons) to the large systems (galaxies) all things are in motion. Therefore, for students to understand the universe they must describe and represent various types of motion. Kinematics, the description of motion, always involves measurements of position and time. Students must describe the relationships between these quantities using mathematical statements, graphs, and motion maps. They use these representations as powerful tools to not only describe past motions but also predict future events.

StandardsP2.1A Calculate average speed of an object using the change of position and elapsed time.
P2.2B Use the change of speed and elapsed time to calculate the average acceleration for linear motion. P2.1C Create line graphs using measured values f position and elapsed time. P2.1D Describe and analyze the motion that a positiontime graph represents, given the graph P2.3a Describe and compare motion of an object using different reference frames. P2.1g Solve problems involving average speed and constant acceleration in one dimension. P2.2e Use the area under a velocitytime graph to calculate the distance traveled and the slope to calculate the acceleration.
