Evaluation of the above will be determined by:
1. The appropriate solution formula.
2. Correct substitution into said formula.
3. The logical consistency of the methods and mathematical steps.
4. Correctness of the final numerical result, including proper units.
The students will develop the following skills to meet the above outcomes.
1. Use computers as a tool to gather and process data from an experiment.
2. Identify and use the proper units for physical quantities.
3. Interpret and construct graphs and diagrams that describe relationships among physical variables and objects.
4. Interpret formulas by identifying the meaning of constants, describing the conditions for which the formula is valid, and using mathematical relationships to predict how a change in one variable affects the value of another variable.
5. Given a problem, decide what information is missing and what given information is irrelevant. Obtain the missing information and solve the problem.
6. Integrate learning from early units in the course to solve a problem later in the course.
7. Apply appropriate physics concepts to solve problems.
8. Determine whether or not the result of a calculation is reasonable.

Statement on Diversity North Central State College believes that every student is a valued and equal member of the community.* Every student brings different experiences to the College, and all are important in enriching academic life and developing greater understanding and appreciation of one another. Therefore, NC State College creates an inclusive culture in which students feel comfortable sharing their experiences. Discrimination and prejudice have no place on the campus, and the College takes any complaint in this regard seriously. Students encountering aspects of the instruction that result in barriers to their sense of being included and respected should contact the instructor, assistant dean, or dean without fear of reprisal.
*Inclusive of race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, national origin (ancestry), military status (past, present or future), disability, age (40 years or older), status as a parent during pregnancy and immediately after the birth of a child, status as a parent of a young child, status as a foster parent, genetic information, or sexual orientation, Standard NCSC Course Policies Important information regarding College Procedures and Policies can be found on the syllabus supplement located at this link
