Publisher: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Description: This algebra lesson helps students understand the relationship between the shape of a graph and the movement of an object. Students will collect and graph data, use slopes of tangent lines to create graphs of instantaneous velocities and instantaneous accelerations and use the area under a graph line to calculate velocities and displacements at specific moments in time. The material is intended for grades 9-12 and should require 3 class periods to complete.
