Terms, Position - where it is (relative to origin), Displacement - movement from position to position, Speed - how fast something is moving (displacement per time), Velocity - vector, has magnitude and direction

Skills, Motion diagrams

The motion exemplified in the first project, object moves parabolically

Skills, LoggerPro Analysis, Diagrams and Charts, Situation, Force, P vs. T, V vs. T, A vs. T

Terms, Force - anything that causes an object to undergo acceleration, Momentum - mass of an object times its velocity

Terms, Elastic Potential Energy - energy needed to compress or expand a spring, Hooke's Law: F = -kx, Kinetic Energy - energy needed to accelerate an object, E = (1/2)mv^2, Gravitational Energy - energy exerted on one object by another, E = mgh

Skills, How energy transfers from one state to another, Example: Elastic energy from rubber band transfers to kinetic energy in marshmallow launch

Since energy is never lost or created, it must be transferred in different forms or to different objects within the system

Neat Videos and email correspondences help to solidify ideas while also improving communication skills

Group projects encourage students to use what they know to build functional representations of their knowledge and analyze them, neat videos show how universally applicable concepts in physics can be

LoggerPro Analysis of video motion, using Excel to calculate and formulate charts modeling motion, transfer findings to VPython to code 3D models of situations

Group projects help students to coordinate ideas and delegate tasks that are suited for each student's skill set, while also helping all to understand concepts more fully
