Mission KG2: Slope and Shape of Position-Time Graphs


Mission KG2 pertains to the interpretation of position-time graphs. Students must use the given shape and slope of the graph to extract information about the velocity and the acceleration of the object. 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 to extract information about the velocity of an object.
  • The student should be able to use an understanding of the shape and slope a position-time graph to extract information about the acceleration of an object.
