Distance time graph
This sequence of lessons explores how well students understand the relationship between distance and time, through interpreting distance and time graphs. This is achieved by figuring out the displacement and acceleration of an object, determining speed and velocity. The lessons are accompanied by a PowerPoint and a student prompt sheet.
