Two day lab to have student utilize knowledge of speed while incorporating math skills and graphing skills
"A central property of motion is speed—the rate at which distance is covered. By rate, we mean how much or how many of something per unit of time: how many kilometers traveled in an hours, how many feet moved in a second, and how many raindrops hitting a roof in a minute. When we measure the speed of an automobile, we measure the rate at which this easily seen physical objects moves over the ground. However, when we measure the speed of sound or the speed of light, we measure the rate at which energy moves. We cannot see this energy, so how can we track it? We can see and measure the speed of the energy pulse that makes a row of dominoes fall!"
