About This Quiz & Worksheet

You will be faced with a series of math problems. The problems will present you with scenarios where objects are falling to the ground. Then the questions will ask you to then find a variable given the information in the problem.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

The assessment will test you on things such as:

  • How to solve for different variables in free fall problems
  • The gravitational constant
  • The five kinematic equations

Skills Practiced

The quiz will help you practice these skills:

  • Problem solving - use acquired knowledge to solve free fall practice problems
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information in free fall problems and interpret it correctly to determine what variables you need to solve for
  • Information recall- access the knowledge you've gained regarding the five kinematic equations

Additional Learning
