In this activity, students' will create constant-speed motion plots and develop linear equations to describe them mathematically.
Distribute the pages to your class.
Follow the Activity procedures:
Students create a distance-time graph made by walking at a constant rate in order to find the mathematical equation that duplicates the plot.
Students use the guess-and-test method to find the equation of the line that matches their data.
Students use linear regression to gauge the accuracy of their calculations of the slope using the coordinates of two data points.
