Product Description
This is a 25 minute Physical Science activity in which students calculate their walking and jogging speeds in miles per hour. They measure out a distance and time themselves walking and jogging it. They first calculate speed in feet per second, then convert it to miles per hour using dimensional analysis. There are six follow up problems using variations of the formula Speed = Distance/Time to calculate distance or time using their speeds from the initial activity. This can also be used in a math class.
