The first writing assignment is to analyze a relevant situation or event from your life in terms of position/displacement, speed/velocity, acceleration and time. Examples might be an important trip, an analysis of a big play in a game, or analyzing a pattern of behavior. The point is to pick something that is

1) interesting to you,

2) is something you might benefit from a physics-based analysis, and

3) will provide a piece of hallmarks evidence for your portfolio.

The write-up is in the form of a quarters report. This format was invented by the US Military in order to facilitate quarterly reporting from all of its subcontractors (which, as you might imagine, fills stacks of binders even in this format!). We are modifying it just a little bit from the basic form to suit our use.

 When My Displacement and Velocity and Acceleration MatterUS Military Contractor Report FormatPurpose: This section is to define the basic purpose of the work being presented. Recommended questions to answer in the analysis section· How did the displacement and position considerations vary for your situation/event?· How did the consideration of velocity compared to speed change your view of the situation/event? Is there a situation where the velocity is more useful than the speed? (Hint: consider an observer’s point of view)· Was acceleration part of the situation you chose?· What, if any, advantages do position/time and velocity/time diagrams provide? Reflection on Position-Displacement, Speed-Velocity, and Acceleration:Discuss the experience of interest.Explain why you were curious about describing your experience in terms of displacement instead of position, velocity instead of speed, and accelerationReflect on any change in how you think about the situation/event introduced by thinking in terms of the physics concepts of position, velocity and acceleration.

The dashed line shows the actual case.
