Physical Science

Unit: Motion

Grant Stock
High School Principal
Crane, MO

Instructional Goals:

1. 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)

1. Analyze the velocity of objects in terms of distance and time, verbally, graphically, diagrammatically, and mathematically. (Strand 2,1: Concept A)

1. 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)

1. 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)

• 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.

Rubric for B and A layer Assignments

This is for non lab B and A layer assignments.

Rubric for B layer labs

1. Title:

As stated in class.

1. Purpose:

State what it is you are trying to determine with this lab.

Points 1

1. Materials and Equipment:

List all materials used and draw a picture of the equipment used

Points 3

1. 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:

1. We placed…..
2. Then measured…...
3. After that we……

Points 3

1. 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

Points 5

1. 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.
