Mission KG3: Matching Motion and Shape on a Position-Time Graph


Mission KG3 pertains to position-time graphs. Students must identify the graphs that match specific verbal descriptions of a motion. The mission consists of 30 questions organized into 10 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to use an understanding of the shape and slope of a position-time graph to extract information about the velocities of objects.
  • The student should be able to use an understanding of the shape and slope of a position-time graph to extract information about the accelerations of objects.
