Match the Graph

Activity Overview

In this activity, students will match their motion to a given graph of position versus time and to a graph of velocity versus time. They will apply the mathematical concepts of slope and y-intercept to a real-world situation.

About the Lesson

Students walk in front of a calculator-based ranger CBR™ 2 and try to match a distance-time graph. They examine the rate of change, and analyze and interpret the graph of a function.
