The all-encompassing bundle to help your students handle 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!
This bundle contains Activities 9-11 from Unit 3 (see my store page for more information on each activity).
With 18 pages and over 75 questions/tasks, the Displacement and Distance Bundle has all the activities you’ll need to help your students tackle any question they’ll come across!
Activity 9 guides students in creating and analyzing graphs given sets of data (both ‘perfect’ and ‘real world’). Activity 10 challenges students with multiple choice and short answer questions covering all aspects of graph analysis. Activity 11 aims to strengthen the ability to match a generic ‘no-numbers’ graph with a description of an object’s motion.
Correlates with standards and questions on the New York State Regents Exam in Physics, with selected questions above the level required on the Exam. Also aligns strongly with many other standardized test questions in linear motion (AP Physics 1/2, SAT II Physics).
