## Learning Outcomes for Experiments, Variables, and Relationships

The list below displays sample learning objectives for the unit on Experiments, Variables, and Relationships. The various activities from the Lesson Plans have been organized by objective. This format of organizing The Physics Classroom's activities may be more useful to some teachers than the Lesson plan format.

### 1. Claim-Evidence-Reasoning

Create a lab report that presents a question or purpose, collected data, and claim that is supported by evidence and reasoning.

Labs:

Think Sheets:

### 2. Relationship Types

To inspect a data set, a graph, or a proportionality statement for two quantities and identify the type of relationship that exists between the two quantities.

Types of Relationships: Short || Long || Slides

Labs:

Think Sheets:

Concept Builders:

### 3. Variables

Use an understanding of variables to identify the dependent variable and independent variable in an experiment

Concept Builders:

### 4. Calulations of Slope

To calculate the slope of a line on a graph for a linear relationship and to use the graph and the slope to determine a value of the dependent variable when given the value of an independent value.

Physics teachers may find the following for-sale tools to be useful supplements to our Lesson Plan and Pacing Guide section:

1. Task Tracker Subscription (annual purchase)
A subscription allows teachers to set up classes, add students, customize online assignments, view student progress/scores, and export student scores. Task Tracker accounts allow your students to begin assignments in class or at school and to finish them at home. View our Seat and Cost Calculator for pricing details.
2. The Solutions Guide
We publish a free curriculum with >200 ready-to-use Think Sheets for developing physics concepts. The Solutions Guide is a download containing the source documents, PDFs of source documents, and answers/solutions in MS Word and PDF format. An expanded license agreement is included with the purchase. (Cost: \$25 download)

3. Teacher Presentation Pack
This is a large collection of downloadable content packed with nearly 190 Microsoft PowerPoint slide decks, the corresponding Lesson Notes (as PDF and fully-modifiable MS Word format), about 170 animations (in .gif, .png, and .mp4 file formats), a countless number of ready-to-use images (including the original source documents that would allow for easy modification of those images), and a license that allows teachers to modify and use all the content with their classes on password-protected sites (such as course management systems).  (Cost: \$40 download)

4. Question Bank
We distribute a Question Bank that includes more than 9300 questions neatly organized according to topic. The Question Bank is the perfect tool for busy teachers or new teachers. Even if you don't use the website with your classes, the Question Bank will assist you in quickly putting together quizzes, tests and other documents with high-quality questions that target student's conceptions of physics principles. And if you do use The Physics Classroom website, the Question Bank is the perfect complement to the materials found at the website. (Cost: \$25 download)
