SCIENTIFIC REASONING

LEARNING GOALS

SR.1 (A) I can identify the phenomena to be

investigated, the explanation to be tested, or
the problem to be solved.

SR.2 (A) I can design a reliable experiment

that investigates the phenomena, tests the
explanation, or solves the problem.

SR.3 (A) I can communicate the details of

an experimental procedure clearly and
completely using words and pictures.

SR.4 (A) I can record and represent data in

a meaningful way.

SR.5 (B) I can analyze data appropriately

and show the analysis clearly and completely.

SR.6 (B) I can represent data graphically

and determine the equation which models
the data.

SR.7 (B) I can identify a pattern in the data

and use the pattern to make predictions.

SR.8 (C) I can make a claim about the

results of an experiment and support the
claim with evidence and reasoning.

SR.9 (C) I can identify possible

uncertainties, evaluate how they affect my
results, and suggest ways to minimize them.
CONSTANT VELOCITY PARTICLE MODEL
LEARNING GOALS

CV.1 (A) I know the difference between

position, distance, and displacement.

CV.2 (A) I know the difference between

speed and velocity.

CV.3 (A) I can solve problems involving

average speed and average velocity.

maps, position vs. time graphs, and velocity
vs. time graphs.

velocity model applies and I use it when
appropriate.
BALANCED FORCE PARTICLE MODEL
LEARNING GOALS

(BFPM and CVPM) to solve a problem for
multiple unknowns.
