Copy of Speed vs. Time and Distance vs. Time Graphs (PK)
- Function Graph
Use the interactive applet for visual understanding of Speed vs. Time graphs. This applet can model any given text problems of up to 5 distinct parts of a total journey. By default, time is in seconds, and distance is in "units." (There is no requirement to click ShowAreaUnderCurve or ShowViewScaleControls) Answer the questions that follow the applet.
Without revealing the Distance vs. Time graph, and without clicking "Start": 1. Calculate the distance travelled from point B to point C. 2. Is the distance travelled from point A to point B less than 100 units, exactly 100 units, or more than 100 units? Explain. 3. Is the car turning back between E & F? Explain. Now reveal the Distance vs. Time graph by clicking "Show Distance Time", and click "Start" to check your answers!
