In this student led activity, the students are to pair up, and gather real life data to visualize the various patterns of a d-t graph.
The students setup at 10m track, and perform 3 different tasks. The 1st task involve students to walk at a steady pace down the 10m track with their partner recording the time at each meter mark. The 2nd tasks involve the student walker to stop and resume walking to show the pattern of moving and stopping in a dt graph. The last (3rd) task involve the students to move away and back towards the origin. This is a great activity for students to visualize the data based on their own motion and data collection.
