Product Description
The killer activity to help your students master multiple choice and short answer questions concerning displacement and distance graphs! Field-tested with hundreds of students and years in the classroom, designed to get maximum results with minimum time invested for both student and teacher!

Activity 10 gives students seven pages loaded with 40 individual questions meant to help you identify their weaknesses among a myriad of skills necessary for displacement and distance graph mastery. Skills tested include:

- Determining average speed and velocity using slope
- Determining instantaneous speed and velocity
- Distinguishing between displacement and distance traveled
- Differentiating between speed and velocity
- Identifying periods of acceleration (as a curve) on a displacement graph
- Identifying direction of motion of object

The first three questions is slightly above Regents-level (or, typical high school physics) work, but forces students to continue to sort out their issues with using specific vocab (distance/displacement, speed/velocity) and recognize general trends on graphs without solving for exact rates of movement.

The final four questions are of a level and design more emblematic of a Regents Exam. A mix of multiple choice and short answer questions cover all aspects of displacement and distance graphs. These questions are excellent as both standard ‘9-to-5’ work for students or test review. (Some have even used these as quick quizzes.)

Correlates with standards and questions on the New York State Regents Exam in Physics. Also aligns strongly with many other standardized test questions in linear motion (AP Physics 1/2, SAT II Physics).

Activities:
- Distinguish between positive/negative velocity given a graph of displacement
- Distinguish between speed and velocity given a graph of displacement
- Determine displacement at various instances given a graph of displacement
- Determine instantaneous speed/velocity given a graph of displacement
- Determine average speed/velocity given a graph of displacement
- Visually identify periods of acceleration given a graph of displacement
- Determine total distance traveled given a graph of displacement
- Determine average acceleration of an object at rest given a graph of displacement

Contents:
- 7 graphs
- 13 multiple choice questions
- Activity comes in PDF format, ensuring accurate reprints
- Equation and Reference Sheet provided
