Universal Gravity and Kelper's Laws Worksheet
High school physicists apply their knowledge of planetary motion. Using Kepler's three laws, Newton's law of universal gravitation, and the provided properties of the moon, sun, and Earth, they proceed to solve 23 problems. An answer key is that you can send home with the homework assignment, or use when you go over solutions in class.

Geometry End Review/Test
In this end of the year geometry review worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 140 different multiple choice problems. First, they find the slope-intercept form of a line passing through a point and parallel to a given line. Then, students determine the transformations that best represent an isometry.

How Do You Find the Height of a Cylinder if You Know the Volume?
Formulas and more formulas. Yes, that's what algebra is all about. Using formulas to solve equations for an unknown value. So in this problem there are two formulas that apply: the volume of a cylinder and the area of a circle. The nice thing is that all the values are given, except the one to solve for, so just plug the values into the right places and do the math.

Attributes of Shapes Guided Lesson Explanation
Triangles, circles, and rectangles are featured in a colorful, one-page worksheet that defines and illustrates these shapes. Read the explanations with your first graders and have them count the number of shapes in a given box. Since the correct answers are already shaded on this template, you might consider redrafting the template to remove the shading.
