# Ch 2: AP Physics 1 Kinematics: Homeschool Curriculum

The kinematics unit of this AP Physics 1 Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about principles of kinematics. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

## Who's it for?

This unit of our AP Physics 1 Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about kinematics concepts. There is no faster or easier way to learn about kinematics. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn kinematics equations, projectile motion, kinematics graphs, scalars and vectors.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a physics curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

## How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and a kinematics unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

## Kinematics Unit Objectives:

• Recognize kinematics as the study of objects' motion.
• Differentiate between scalars and vectors.
• Learn how to determine the position of an object at any moment in time.
• Distinguish between an object's distance and its displacement.
• Discover the difference between an object's speed and its velocity.
• Calculate an object's acceleration using the appropriate equation.
• Understand scientific figures and how to provide answers using scientific notation.
• Solve two-step accelerated motion problems using the big five kinematic equations.
• Learn how to use graphs to represent kinematics.
• Analyze objects' motion using ticker tape diagrams.
• List the uses of vector diagrams.
• Describe motion using position vs. time graphs.
• Find the slope of a line on position vs. time graphs.
• Describe motion based on velocity vs. time graphs.
• Ascertain acceleration using the slope of a velocity vs. time graph.
• Find an object's displacement using a velocity vs. time graph.
• Provide qualitative descriptions of graphs of motion.
• Determine the speed, time and height in free fall problems.
• Use position vs. time and velocity vs. time graphs to represent free fall motion.
• Explore an object's acceleration moving under the influence of gravity.
• Understand what projectile motion is and how to solve projectile motion problems.
• Identify the list of equations used to represent objects' motion.
