Secondary Cycle One
 Types of motion
 Identifies parts that move in a specific way in a technical object (rectilinear translation, rotation, helical)
 Effects of a force
 Explains the effects of a force in a technical object (change in the motion of an object, distortion of a material)

Secondary Cycle Two
Only those concepts specific to the Physics program are identified by a number.
Light blue shading indicates that the student acquired this knowledge in Secondary III or IV. 
 Relationship between constant speed, distance and time

 Describes qualitatively the relationship between speed, distance and time






 Applies the mathematical relationship between constant speed, distance and time
(v = d/Δt)






 Reference systems

 Chooses a reference system suited to the situation
 




 Uniform rectilinear motion

 Relationship among position with respect to the point of origin, velocity and time

 Provides a qualitative explanation and uses a graph to illustrate the relationship between the position of an object with respect to its point of origin (displacement), its velocity and the time during which it is in motion
 




 Applies the mathematical relationship between position with respect to the point of origin (displacement), velocity and time
(Δd = vΔt) in a given situation
 




 Displacement and distance travelled

 Distinguishes displacement from distance travelled
 




 Speed changes

 Uses systems that allow for speed changes in the design of technical objects






 Uniformly accelerated rectilinear motion

 Relationship among acceleration, change in velocity and time

 Provides a qualitative explanation and uses a graph to illustrate the relationship between the acceleration of a body, the change in its velocity and the time during which this change occurs
 




 Applies the mathematical relationship between acceleration, change in velocity and time (a = Δv/Δt) in a given situation
 




 Relationship among acceleration, distance and time

 Provides a qualitative explanation and uses a graph to illustrate the relationship between the acceleration of a body, the distance it travelled and the time interval
 




 Applies the mathematical relationship between acceleration, the distance travelled and the time (Δd = v_{i}Δt + ½aΔt^{2}) in a given situation
 




 Average velocity and instantaneous velocity

 Determines the average velocity of an object
 




 Determines the instantaneous velocity of an object
 




 Explains the distinction between average velocity and instantaneous velocity
 




 Free fall

 Provides a qualitative explanation and uses a graph to illustrate the motion of a freefalling body (position, displacement, average velocity, instantaneous velocity, acceleration)
 




 Determines the position, displacement, average velocity, instantaneous velocity or acceleration of a freefalling body
 




 Motion of a body on an inclined plane

 Provides a qualitative explanation and uses a graph to illustrate the motion of a body on an inclined plane (position, displacement, average velocity, instantaneous velocity, acceleration)
 




 Determines the position, displacement, average velocity, instantaneous velocity or acceleration of a body on an inclined plane
 




 Motion of projectiles

 Explains the motion of a projectile (combination of uniform rectilinear motion and uniformly accelerated rectilinear motion)
 




 Determines the position, displacement or instantaneous velocity of a projectile, or the time elapsed
