Title Moving Man with Position and Velocity graphs
Description This is the first of two inquiry activities to teach students about motion graphs. Learning goal: Students will be able to: (1) describe how the person moved by looking at motion graphs -- or -- (2) sketch graphs when a person?s motion is described. This is very similar to Trish Loeblein's activity, but revised for 9th graders. After this lesson, they will complete another on acceleration. There is a quiz for the end of the position and velocity lesson, and there is a pre/post test to be completed after they've worked through the acceleration lesson.
