This lesson begins a unit on motion (kinematics). It introduces scalars, vectors and the difference between distance and displacement. This lesson folder contains a PowerPoint and guided notes (in both word and pages format). I have used this lesson in my own class with great success and have adapted it for general use (e.g., removed anything specific to my class). The lesson contains five discussion questions that get students immediately using the concepts and can easily be used to differentiate to every skill level. The PowerPoint also includes a Launch (Do Now) and Exit Ticket.
