  • Quizbank now resides on MyOpenMath at (although I hope Wikiversity can play an important role in helping students and teachers use these questions!)
  • At the moment, most of the physics questions have already been transferred. To see them, join as a student, and "enroll" in one or both of the following courses:
    • Quizbank physics 1 (id 60675)
    • Quizbank physics 2 (id 61712)
    • Quizbank astronomy (id 63705)

The enrollment key for each course is 123. They are all is set to practice mode, giving students unlimited attempts at each question. Instructors can also print out copies of the quiz for classroom use. If you have any problems leave a message at user talk:Guy vandegrift.

motionSimpleArithmetic[edit | edit source]

Click each image to expand. The first shows a 5 question quiz so simple one only needs to calculate the area of a triangle or rectangle. The arithmetic is so simple that no calculator is required[1] Attribution for the questions can be found at

The other three images shown below are solutions written by a student. The plan is convert all the quizzes in Quizbank. This quiz replaces QB/b motionSimpleArithmetic

The implications of the relating area under a velocity curve to distance travels has a number of consequences for Calculus. See for example:
