Course Level Expectation
Understand the mathematical principles that underlie the science of physics.
Utilize appropriate mathematical equations and processes to solve basic physics problems.
Check For Understanding
Use a variety of notations appropriately (e.g., exponential, functional, square root).
Select and apply an appropriate method for computing with real numbers, and evaluate the reasonableness of results.
Apply and interpret rates of change from graphical and numerical data.
Analyze graphs to describe the behavior of functions.
Interpret results of algebraic procedures.
Model real-world phenomena using functions and graphs.
Articulate and apply algebraic properties in symbolic manipulation.
Apply and communicate measurement concepts and relationships in algebraic and geometric problem-solving situations.
Make decisions about units, scales, and measurement tools that are appropriate for problem situations involving measurement.
Collect, represent, and describe linear and nonlinear data sets developed from the real world.
Make predictions from a linear data set using a line of best fit.
Interpret a data set using appropriate measures of central tendency.
Choose, construct, and analyze appropriate graphical representations for a data set.
Use real numbers to represent real-world applications (e.g., slope, rate of change, probability, and proportionality).
Apply right triangle relationships including the Pythagorean Theorem and the distance formula.
Use concepts of length, area, and volume to estimate and solve real-world problems.
Demonstrate an understanding of rates and other derived and indirect measurements (e.g., velocity, miles per hour, revolutions per minute, and cost per unit).
