In this packet we will look at:
The meaning of acceleration.
How acceleration is related to velocity and time.
2 distinct types acceleration.
A simple equation which help us calculate average acceleration.
I begin by introducing acceleration as we think about it in everyday conversations then develop it into how we think about it in physics. At the end of the packet I provide some example problems for the student to review to check their understand and provide solutions.
You may want to review Velocity before beginning this packet.
In this slide show I introduce the student to acceleration and how it is related to velocity and time.
