# Ch 2: Studying Motion with Kinematics

The fun and engaging video lessons found in this chapter help your middle school students explore motion in physics through kinematics. Students can take lesson quizzes and a chapter exam to assess their knowledge of speed, velocity, acceleration, free fall motion and more.

## Studying Motion with Kinematics - Chapter Summary

Use the video lessons in this chapter on motion and kinematics to help students better understand this aspect of physics. The lessons help students define kinematics and acceleration and examine the differences between speed and velocity. Students also learn how to use graphs to explore free fall motion and use a formula to examine the acceleration of gravity. The lessons also offer free fall physics practice problems and highlight the big five kinematics equations. A timeline is available to help you jump to different topics in each video lesson and you can reach out to instructors with any questions. Students can also take lesson quizzes to assess their comprehension of kinematics.
