This Self-Learning Module (SLM) is prepared so that you, our dear learners, can continue your studies and learn while at home. Activities, questions, directions, exercises, and discussions are carefully stated for you to understand each lesson.
Each SLM is composed of different parts. Each part shall guide you step-by-step as you discover and understand the lesson prepared for you.
Pre-tests are provided to measure your prior knowledge on lessons in each SLM. This will tell you if you need to proceed on completing this module or if you need to ask your facilitator or your teacher’s assistance for better understanding of the lesson. At the end of each module, you need to answer the post-test to self-check your learning. Answer keys are provided for each activity and test. We trust that you will be honest in using these.
Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
You observe a lot of moving objects every day. Some objects move along a straight line like a car traversing the highway while other objects move in circles like a rotating disk. Because you experience motion on a daily basis, you may find it ordinary and unnecessary to learn. In Physics, however, learning about motion requires understanding of the quantities related to it. These quantities include distance or displacement, speed or velocity, and acceleration.
This module provides you with the essential concepts and activities necessary to describe motion along a straight path and in terms of position, distance, and speed. You will learn to interpret and analyze motion of objects through charts, diagrams and graphs.
After going through this module, you are expected to:
1. describe the point of reference of an object; and
2. differentiate the distance and displacement covered by an object.
