Making Motion Matter

Students will be presented with graphical representations of kinematic motion and they will be asked to use these graphs to come up with other quantities that might be useful. Students will build on the ideas of position, velocity, time and acceleration and be able to come up and use the basic understanding of calculus to relate the quantities.
Subjects: Physics, Science
Prior Knowledge: Algebra and Trig/Pre-Calculus, basic concept of position, velocity, acceleration, and time
Key Concepts and Terms: Acceleration, Plotting/Sketching, Position, Slope and “Change of”, Velocity
