9 Unit 1 Practice and Assessment

Outcome 1

1) Diagram the energy pathway of the human body at the most basic level. Label each of the three basic processes with an example from earlier today of how that process happened for you.

Outcome 2

2) State three basic concepts studied in physics and covered in this textbook.

3) Browse the table of contents and state which topic covered by this book looks most interesting to you and why.

Outcome 3

4) Identify three possible barriers to your academic success.

5) Provide a possible solution to each of three barriers to academic success.

Outcome 4

6) Identify at least two important differences in academic expectations and/or academic structure between high school and college.

7) What is the highest level of cognition at which you have operated? Was it at home, school, work, or during military service? Explain the situation using terms from Bloom's Taxonomy.

8) Explain how you acquired the experience, skills, and knowledge necessary to operate at the cognitive level you described in the previous question. Were you born with it, just acquire it suddenly one day, or did you acquire it gradually over time? Did it take effort or was it easy?

Outcome 5

9) Apply metacognition to some information from outside this course that you might already understand. State the information, explain how you applied metacognition, and then explain how metacognition affected your original understanding.

10) Build your personal study strategy for this course. The strategy should include activities like reading, working examples, video watching, homework, office hour visits, exam preparation, etc.

a) First enter the obligations you already have, such as work, other classes, family obligations, athletic practices, and any others into a planner.


b) Next, find out how much time you will be expected to spend on each course outside of the classroom. The time will depend on the class level (number), the course credits, and your preparation and familiarity with the subject matter. Your instructor will be able to help you estimate this time.


c) Finally, incorporate your effective study cycle into your schedule. Identify time in your schedule to complete each part of your study cycle.


d) Also schedule time for other things that may be important to you, such as exercise or time with friends. If there isn’t enough time for everything, you will need to prioritize. Simply neglecting some of your obligations is not a good strategy and will not lead to success.


e) If you discover that you are short on time and some prioritization is necessary, work with your instructor and your advisor, as well as family and work, to ensure that you have enough time to meet all of your obligations.
