Description:

Learn to use the slope of a position-time graph to find the velocity. SmartGraphs software can lead you through the calculation of “rise” over “run.” How Fast Am I Moving is the third of five SmartGraphs activities designed for a typical physical science unit of study on the motion of objects.

Model with mathematics.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.EE.C.9: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Use variables to represent two quantities in a real-world problem that change in relationship to one another; write an equation to express one quantity, thought of as the dependent variable, in terms of the other quantity, thought of as the independent variable. Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Graph proportional relationships, interpreting the unit rate as the slope of the graph. Compare two different proportional relationships represented in different ways.

CCSS.Math.Content.8.F.B.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Describe qualitatively the functional relationship between two quantities by analyzing a graph (e.g., where the function is increasing or decreasing, linear or nonlinear). Sketch a graph that exhibits the qualitative features of a function that has been described verbally.
