To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.
Types of Motion
Students will distinguish between and/or interpret the types of motion.
6 Chapter 3: Kinematics
In this chapter, we analyze the motion of constantly accelerated objects over time in terms of displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
5 Chapter 6: Waves
In this chapter, we explore the mathematical concept of a wave and show how this concept can be used to accurately describe and predict many natural phenomena.
3 Chapter 7: Static Electricity
In this chapter, we explore how electrically charged particles interact through electrostatic forces and fields.
3 Chapter 1: Nature of Science and Scientific Ethics
In this chapter, we explore the nature of science itself, including its practice, ethics, and impact.
5 Chapter 2: Tools of Physics
In this chapter, we discuss several ideas and tools that will be helpful in our introductory study of physics.
5 Chapter 4: Newton's Laws and Momentum
In this chapter, we introduce Newton's laws, and then explore the concepts of momentum and conservation of momentum.
7 Chapter 5: Conservation of Energy and Gravitation
In this chapter, we explore a formulation of classical physics in the context of energy rather than force, and we explore the concept of gravitation in more universally applicable detail.
5 Chapter 8: Circuits and Magnetism
In this chapter, students will learn introductory concepts surrounding electricity and magnetism.
7 Chapter 9: Special Topics
In this chapter, we present several special topics that may arise in the study of physics.
6 Chapter 10: Equipment and Experiments
In this chapter, we demonstrate the use of various laboratory equipment.
Introduction to Logical Reasoning
This activity provides the opportunity to explore the validity of the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of statements. It also assists in recognizing the connections between biconditional statements and true conditional statements with a true converse.
Introduction to Probability
This activity provides the opportunity to explore the difference between finding the probability of independent events and dependent events. It also addresses how to use a tree diagram when calculating conditional probabilities.
Using Logical Reasoning to Prove Conjectures About Quadrilaterals
Given conjectures about quadrilaterals, the student will use deductive reasoning and counterexamples to prove or disprove the conjectures.
This resource provides alternative or additional tier-one learning options for students learning about projectile motion—Physics TEKS (4)(C).
3.02 Average Speed and Average Velocity
In this video, we explore the difference between speed and velocity, and their relationship to distance and displacement.
3.03 Kinematic Equations in One Dimension
In this video, we introduce the three primary kinematics equations and apply them to one-dimensional problems. The term "acceleration" is also introduced.
3.04 Kinematic Equations Graphical Analysis
In this video, we analyze hypothetical experiments by graphing position, velocity, and acceleration versus time, qualitatively.
3.05 Kinematic Equations in Two Dimensions
In this video, we apply the three primary kinematic equations to projectile motion problems.
