Product Description
I think one of the most confusing things for students when learning about acceleration is how you can have a positive acceleration even when slowing down (so long, of course, as you are moving in the negative direction). With this worksheet, I walk students through the two ways acceleration can be positive, and the two ways it can be negative. I usually tell some silly anecdote as we work through the graphs just to help it make more sense, but, overall, I think the simple act of seeing the concept laid out graphically helps them to get a better understanding of "the sign of acceleration."
