#### Storyboard Text

• I wonder what your average speed is.﻿
• I went at a speed of 4 m / s﻿
• Two kids want to find out what their average speed is on this bicycle.
• I wonder what the velocity was.﻿
• The formula to find the average speed is distance / time.  The distance the boy on the bike traveled is 20 m.  The time it took was 5 s.
• The formula for velocity is distance in a direction / time.﻿
• So, the average speed is 4 m / s.
• We were moving North and didn't change direction, so our velocity was 4 m / s North.
• The kids also want to know what their velocity was.
• The formula for velocity is distance in a direction / time.  So velocity changes due to change in speed, direction, or both.
• They knew they were moving North, so their velocity was 4 m / s North.
