To follow up on my last post these are the standards that I have come up with so far. I’ll revise them over the summer.

- Collect data and analyze data
- Express the uncertainty in a measurement
- Write a formal lab report based on experimental data
- Add and subtract two or more vectors
- Apply vector analysis to solve practical navigation problems (relative motion)
- Apply vector analysis to solve projectile motion problems
- Apply Newton’s laws of motion to solve 1-dimensional problems
- Apply Newton’s laws of motion to solve 2-dimensional problems
- Solve problems using the conditions for equilibrium
- Solve problems using the law of conservation of energy
- Apply the law of conservation of momentum to 1-dimensional problems
- Apply the law of conservation of momentum to 2-dimensional problems
- Apply the concept of impulse to solve problems
- Analyze situations involving an object travelling in uniform horizontal circular motion
- Analyze situations involving an object travelling in uniform vertical circular motion
- Analyze the gravitational attraction between two masses
- Analyze the energy (potential, kinetic and total) of a satellite in orbit
- Apply Coulomb’s law to a system of charged objects
- Analyze electric fields and their effects on charged objects
- Apply the concept of electric potential to a system of charged objects
- Apply the concept of electric potential energy to a system of charged objects
- Apply Ohm’s law and Kirchoff’s laws to direct current circuits
- Solve electric circuit problems taking into account the internal resistance of a battery
- Analyze the effect of a magnetic field on a moving electric charge
- Analyze the effect of a magnetic field on a current carrying wire
- Solve problems involving a solenoid
- Analyze the effect of a magnetic field on a moving conductor
- Apply Faraday’s law and Lenz’s law to situations involving electromagnetic induction
- Apply the concept of back emf to a DC motor
- Solve problems that deal with an ideal transformer

The students can get one of the following grades on each standard:

- 0 – Not attempted – each standard starts at this level
- 1 – Needs Improvement
- 2 – Adequate
- 3 – Master
