Week 2 – Constant Velocity

This week, we did the Toy Car lab.

After observing the motion, students said they thought it was traveling constant speed. They marked the position of the car every 2 seconds, and then graphed their data.  They also wrote equations for the motion of the car:

2016-06-14 14.47.24 2016-06-14 14.48.41 2016-06-14 14.49.08

Through discussion, we developed our Constant Velocity motion model:
