Student Review Upon successful completion of the first semester the student should be able to: Physics Skills and Processes 1• interpret graphs and diagrams. 2• identify trends revealed by data. 3• analyze data to form conclusions. 4• defend the need for verifiable data. 5• read and interpret a technical passage. 6• identify the hypothesis of an experiment. 7• identify meaningful, answerable, scientific questions. 8• identify appropriate methods for conducting an investigation. 9• use ratio and proportion in appropriate situations to solve problems. 10• distinguish between a dependent variable and an independent variable. 11• describe similarities and differences when explaining concepts and/or principles. Physics Concepts 12• identify appropriate units for quantities. 13 KINEMATICS 1• given a vector diagram of an object’s velocity, determine the magnitude of its components. 2• interpret a position versus time graph to determine the velocity and initial position of an object. 3• given velocity versus time graphs, determine changes in direction, distance traveled, displacement, initial velocity, and acceleration. 4• identify the path that an object would take when dropped from a moving object. 5•
