1. Determine the average velocity of an object in two
ways:

by determining
the slope of an x vs. t graph.

by using the equation.

2. Determine the displacement of an object in two ways:

by finding the area under a v vs. t graph.

by using the equation

3. Given an x vs. t graph,

describe the motion of the object (starting position, direction of motion, velocity).

draw the corresponding v vs. t graph.

draw a motion map for the object.

determine the average velocity of the object
(from the slope).

write
the mathematical representation that describes the motion.

4.
Given a v vs. t graph,

describe
the motion of the object (direction of motion, how fast).

draw the corresponding x vs. t graph.

determine the displacement of the object (from the area under curve).

draw a motion map for the object.

write a mathematical representation to describe
the motion.

Terms and Definitions:

Average Velocity
=change in position / change in time

Displacement is the straight-line distance between the initial and
final positions.

Path length = total distance traveled along a path to move from the starting position
to the ending position.

Average Speed = path length / change in time

Scalar = A quantity that tells
magnitude (how much); i.e., speed, time, mass, odometer reading, etc

Vector = A quantity that tells
both magnitude and direction; i.e., velocity, displacement, force, etc.

Qualitative = Conceptually
correct, but not numerically precise

Quantitative = Numerically Accurate
