## Building an Appropriate Flash Card Set for Each Unit

The example cards below represent the type of information you will want to put onto your index cards to prepare for both your midterm and the AP Physics 1 Exam. Below the pictures, you will find further information that you should list for each unit. Remember to keep the information on your cards brief, simple and easy to read. Using multiple colors to identify variables will be advantageous in helping you to quiz yourself quickly.

**These will graded! Do not lose these cards!**## Kinematics (1-D & 2-D) Flash Cards

These cards should include the following:

Linear Motion Equations, with all variables identified (Hint: There are 4 main Kinematics Equations, starting on page three of the Rectilinear Motion pdf below)

Equations for both Constant and Non-Constant Acceleration

Projectile Motion Equations, with variables identified
