Need help connecting calculating speed to motion graphs?
I use this worksheet to reinforce what my students know about motion graphs and have them connect that to speed calculations. We walk through this together. I have them graph the Hare first and have them tell me what they know about his speed based on what we graphed. Then we calculate his speed and compare it to what was predicted. I do the same with the Tortoise. The we compare which parts of the graph indicate a change in speed and finally what the tortoise's Constant Speed looks like. It's nice practice for them. Short, sweet and effective.
