1 ) Investigate and analyze, based on evidence obtained through observation or experimental design, the motion of an object using both graphical and mathematical models (e.g., creating or interpreting graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration versus time graphs for one- and two-dimensional motion; solving problems using kinematic equations for the case of constant acceleration) that may include descriptors such as position, distance traveled, displacement, speed, velocity, and acceleration.

10 ) Plan and carry out investigations that evaluate the mathematical
explanations of light as related to optical systems (e.g., reflection,
refraction, diffraction, intensity, polarization, Snell's law, the inverse
square law).

So we've all heard of relativity, right? What is relativity? How does it relate to light? Motion? In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini talks to us about perspective, observation, and how relativity is really weird.

Whenever you walk across a bridge or lean on a building, statics are at work. Statics is the study of objects when they're not accelerating. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini talks to us about stretching, compressing, and springing as they relate to statics.

This video explores fluids and fluid dynamics. How do fluids act when they arre in motion? How does pressure in different places change water flow? And what is one of the motion annoying things about filming outside on a nice day?

In this first episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini Somara introduces us to the ideas of motion in a straight line. She talks about displacement, acceleration, time, velocity, and the definition of acceleration.

Dr. Shini introduces the ideas of vectors and scalars so we can better understand how to figure out motion in two dimensions. But what does that have to do with baseball? Or two baseballs?
