Goals:
 Be able
to explain the difference between distance and displacement and know
how to calculate both. Know how to read a position
time graph. (Strand 2,1: Concept A)
 Analyze
the velocity of objects in terms of distance and time, verbally,
graphically, diagrammatically, and mathematically. (Strand
2,1: Concept A)
 Measure
and analyze the acceleration of an object by looking at it velocity,
and the rate of change in position over time. Be able to do this
verbally, diagrammatically, graphically, and mathematically. (Strand
2,1: Concept B)
 Be able
to compare the momentum of two objects in terms of mass and velocity.
Show how total momentum remains constant in a system. (Strand
2,1: Concept C)

are some of the fastest cars in the world? Give me some statistics on
them and how fast they can go. (8 points)
 The

 To
get a B you must earn the points as well as do at least 2 assignments
in the B category.
 To
get an A you must earn the points as well as do at least 1 assignments
in the A category.
Rubric
for Oral Defense C Layer
Students will demonstrate their understanding of the goal covered by
defending their C layer assignments with an Oral defense.
 First
student must show a completed assignment in order to do an oral defense.
 Depending
upon the assignment the teacher will tell the student how many
questions will be asked them and what each question will be worth.
(Example: If the assignment is to do a vocabulary sheet
for the unit and it is worth 5 points then teacher might say I will ask
you to define five words I pick. Each correct answer will be worth one
point.)
 Teacher
will ask student and they will give their response.
 Teacher
will sign off on work sheet how many points the student earned.

 Title:
 Purpose:
State what it is you are trying to determine with
this lab.
 Materials
and Equipment:
List all materials used and draw a picture of the
equipment used
 Procedure:
List step
by step each procedure you used in doing up the experiment. Make sure
you are detailed and specific remember that it should be able to be
repeated by some one else simply by following your steps. Also be neat
and make each step in numbered sequence.
Example:
 We
placed…..
 Then
measured…...
 After
that we……
 Data
Collection and Data Analysis:
 Record
your data in a table. Make sure to take accurate notes.
 Data
analysis would be any equations charts or graph that are needed
 Conclusion:
Write what
you thought about the lab. Tell me the answer to the purpose of the
lab. Tell me any mistakes you may have made or things you would do
differently. Be specific and detailed here.
