Online Resources

Acceleration Tutorial
This website presents you with a thorough lesson on acceleration, how to calculate it using a formula, how to determine it using a graph, and how to manipulate acceleration equations to determine other factors. Make sure you know the general formula before proceeding onto more advanced problems. Also, pay close attention to how to manipulate equations as well as determine which equations to use depending on which factors you’re given. With this information, you should be able to manipulate formulas, determine acceleration, velocity, and time, as well as perform and solve calculations based on reading a graph. Try solving the questions provided on the page in the order they’re presented before proceeding onto the rest of the page.

Kinematics Tutorial
This website also presents you with a lesson on acceleration, how to calculate it using a formula, and how to determine it using a data table. Pay close attention to when to use negative (slowing down) and positive (speeding up) for acceleration. With this information, you should be able to use the general formula to determine acceleration, velocity, and time, as well as perform and solve calculations based on a given data table. Try solving the questions provided at the bottom of the page to assess your understanding of the website content.

Newton’s Three Laws of Motion
This website presents you with a thorough lesson on Newton’s three laws of motion. Make sure you know what the three laws are and be able to apply them to real life situations (as well as identify which of the three laws applies to particular real life examples). Pay close attention to how to determine net force (depending on whether the forces are balanced or unbalanced). Also, pay attention to how force, mass, and acceleration tie into one another and be able to calculate one factor when given the other two. In addition, pay close attention to examples of action and reaction forces and be able to identify them when given situations. With the information presented here, you should be able to determine net force, calculate for force, mass, and acceleration, and identify where action and reaction forces exist. Try answering the questions provided in each individual lesson page in the order they’re presented before proceeding onto the next lesson.
