Topic 2.1 Project

Topic 2.1 - Project
This project must be typed up and it must include the assessment criteria from this topic
(shown below). Your electronic copy must be uploaded to TurnItIn.com, and your hard
copy must be submitted to me, by our prearranged due date. Project marks are meant to
replace the marks of the corresponding Summative Assessment whether or not they are
better. Projects are your final opportunity to demonstrate the level of your proficiency in
the understanding of this material. Projects may be resubmitted as many times as you
like. Be sure to download the Project Evaluation rubric to guide you in obtaining
maximum marks on your Project submission.
• Distance and displacement
• Speed and velocity
• Acceleration
• Graphs describing motion
• Equations of motion for uniform acceleration
• Projectile motion
• Fluid resistance and terminal speed
Applications and skills:
• Determining instantaneous and average values for velocity, speed and acceleration
• Solving problems using equations of motion for uniform acceleration
• Sketching and interpreting motion graphs
• Determining the acceleration of free-fall experimentally
• Analysing projectile motion, including the resolution of vertical and horizontal components of
acceleration, velocity and displacement
• Qualitatively describing the effect of fluid resistance on falling objects or projectiles, including
reaching terminal speed
In this project you will write an organized paper explaining this topic and addressing all
of the assessment criteria listed above. You should...
●consult the online PowerPoint notes and the Wiki assessment criteria hints so that your
efforts are not wasted,
●define the important concepts in your own words,
●include pictures and diagrams whenever they are relevant, citing sources,
●show formulas and explain the meaning of each symbol,
●demonstrate in detail the usage of each formula through legitimate sample problems of
your own design, including detailed solutions,
●adhere to significant figures and show correct units in your answers,
●show derivations of any formulas we derived in class.
