Derivative Module:
Introduction to Velocity, Using the Distance Graph

Lisa Denise Murphy

Unfortunately, when I converted the files to JPG, the grids on some of the graphs disappeared. I will try to get a better copy, with the grid lines on the graphs. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, you can get the idea of what it should look like.

These exercises are designed to introduce the concept of velocity, as a vector quantity (with both magnitude and direction), and enable the students to determine velocity from the distance graphs.
