Grade: 12

Subject: Physics
Standard 1: Mechanics
Unit 1: Investigating fundamental physical quantities of length, mass, and time.

Formative assessment 1- During note taking or an experiment, ask students what random
quantities such as Grams, Feet, Hours and Pounds all convey and what measurement and
equation they are all used in.

Formative assessment 2- Ask students to demonstrate what they know about how mass, length
and time, how they are determined, tools used to measure the physical quantities listed, and
units that each measurement can use.

Formative assessment 3- Evaluate the dynamics of systems in motion including friction, gravity,
impulse and momentum, change in momentum, and conservation of momentum. Coefficient of
Friction: μ = Ff/FN; Law of Universal Gravitation: FG = (Gm1m2)/d2 ; Impulse: FΔt = mΔt.
(Calculators are allowed if necessary)

Summative assessment 1: Multiple Choice-

Which answer choice BEST explains Pascal's Principle?

A. Pascal’s principle is the number of constituent particles, usually atoms or

molecules, that are contained in the amount of substance given by one mole.
B. Pascal’s Principle states that a pressure change occurring anywhere in a
confined incompressible fluid is transmitted throughout the fluid such that the
same change occurs everywhere.
C. According to Pascal’s principle, at any point inside a static fluid the vertical rate
of increase of pressure must equal the local specific weight of the fluid.
D. Pascal’s principle states that a particle attracts every other particle in the
universe using a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses
and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers.

Summative assessment 2: Constructive Response-

Based on your knowledge of Physics and Applied Mechanics, write a constructed

response on the applications of Bernoulli’s Principle.

Summative assessment 3: True/False-

True or False- Newton’s first law states that; for every action an object creates, there
will be an equal and opposite reaction on that object.

Summative assessment 4: Essay Questions

Explain in what ways Newton’s three laws impacted the scientific community and how
his contributions affected how we view the study of physics today.

For my subject, I chose senior physics, and used Standard 1 Mechanics and Unit 1:
Investigating fundamental physical quantities of length, mass, and time. Using a subject
that is so dependent on words and mathematics allowed me to implement the higher
levels of my vocabulary and also showed me how to, as well as how not to, write a good
assessment, with some of my formative questions being pretty basic, yet most of my
summative questions being wonderful. Not only did I include questions that challenged
students, but I also included questions that were related to the standard of my subject.
