# Kinematics Crime Scene

Before Class Preparation:

In Class Activity:

• Who destroyed Wilma Wilshire’s priceless antique vase?
• Can you:
• Use the kinematic equations to solve for an unknown variable
• Set up a free fall problem using the acceleration of gravity
• Interpret a diagram to calculate the acceleration for a moving object
• Create a mathematical model to predict for a given scenario
• Work productively in a group

After Class Work:

• Braingenie

# Graph Conversion

Before Class Preparation:

• Video:
• Print handout for activity

In Class Activity:

• Analyse and interpret position–time, velocity–time, and acceleration–time graphs of motion in one dimension
• Use the tangents to convert position–time graphs to velocity–time graphs)
• Part 4: Complete this worksheet and submit it later
• Part 5: Scavenger hunt in the classroom

After Class Work:

# Area of VT Graphs

Before Class Preparation:

In Class Activity:

• Analyse and interpret position–time, velocity–time, and acceleration–time graphs of motion in one dimension
• Use the area under the curve to create position–time graphs from velocity–time graphs and velocity–time graphs from acceleration–time graphs)
• Area of VT Graph worksheet
• PollEV Discussion

# Velocity-Time Graphs

Before Class Preparation:

• Finish Non-Uniform motion handout
• If possible, print this worksheet and
• Complete Part A (Remember these are Velocity-Time Graphs)

In Class Practice:

• PollEV Discussions for motion
• conduct an inquiry into the uniform motion of an object
• solve problems involving uniform linear motion in one dimension using graphical analysis
• Using Motion Sensors to investigate v-t graphs
• PollEV Discussions

After Class Work:

• Read & take notes on this Powerpoint if you like taking notes

# Introduction to Motion

Before Class Preparation:
