    I'm assuming solving for variables in equations? Graphing lines?

    riku92mr seems to have covered it, but I just wanted to add that I like to use interative numerical analysis on a lot of problems. This way students repeat some calculations so often that they actually remember them.
    I think guess and check approaches are commonly taught in 7-9 so the repetitive process helps students develop formulas.

    In my school, to be in AE (Accelerated/Enriched) Physics, you need to be AE Trig.
    To be in Honors Physics, you need to be in AB Calc or BC Calc.
    To be in CP Physics, you need to be in CP Trig.
