The BC Calculus test assesses motion problems using both simple position functions and vector-valued functions. In this foldable, students compare the formulas for velocity, acceleration, speed, average velocity, average speed, and total distance travelled for both types of problems. They complete all the formulas on the outside of the foldable and work an example of each inside the foldable. The examples for simple functions are noncalculator and the examples for vectors require a calculator
All my foldables are self-guided which allow the students to start the foldable in class for about 10 to 15 minutes then complete the AP style examples at home. This foldable can be used alone or glued into an Interactive Notebook the size of a 9½ by 7½ composition book. Hope this is helpful. Enjoy!
My students encounter this concept in our calculus textbook in Ch. 12 on vector valued functions thus the numbering 12-1.
