Product Description
Most students, upon entering physics, have a common misconception of the term "distance." This is an easy-to-understand misconception given the everyday usage of the term. However, it is important that students not only understand the true meaning of the term "distance," but that they understand the term "displacement," as well and its vector meaning. In this worksheet, students will work through a very simple breakdown of both terms as well as some examples to help solidify the point.
