## Science 10: Physical Science - Motion

__Guiding Question__: How do we measure movement?It is expected that you will be able to:

- explain the relationship of displacement and time interval to velocity for objects in uniform motion.

- demonstrate the relationship between velocity, time interval, and acceleration.

Please refer to Chapters 12 and 13 in your "Science Probe 10" textbook.

Here are the PLOs for the unit. Here is a practice quiz for chapter 12 (answers) and chapter 13 (answers) and unit D (answers)
