In this activity, you will create a picture of time and speed as they relate to changes in the weight of a radio controlled race car. This picture will be a graph - a mathematical model- that allows to you predict the speed of your radio controlled car at weights you have not yet run. You will collect data on performance then use it to predict future performance.
