At the beginning of this course you were given some overarching enduring understandings and essential questions. These were:

Overarching Enduring Understandings: Students will uncover and use appropriate scientific models to describe and quantify the nature and interactions of matter and energy.

Students should understand that there is a network of rules and relationships that determine what will happen in a given situation

Students should understand that physics principles are applicable to their everyday lives

Students should find that by studying the rules of nature, the beauty of natural world becomes more alive to them

Overarching Essential Questions: 1. How does physics serve to improve our understanding of physical systems?

2. How do the principles of physics effect your daily life?

3. Describe something in nature that has become more compelling for you because of an understanding of physics principles

4. Is it possible to describe the whole natural world (chemical and biological) with a small number of physical principles? Explain!

5. Is physics a redundant science? Do we now have a clear understanding of the interactions between matter and energy on all scales? Is technological application the main thrust of physics research today? Explain!

Assignment:

    Graphs and charts are common tools used in science. To interpret graphs, read the axis labels as well as the numbers on the axis. The title should give you some clue as to the purpose of the graph. Next, examine the content. Try to describe the content in words, using “As ____(quantity on the x axis), ____(type of change, such as increases or decreases), ____ (quantity on the y axis) ___(type of change such as increases or decreases).” For example, the graph above could be described, “As time increases from 0 to 8 seconds, the velocity of Billy increases linearly from 0 to about 14 m/s.”…
