What can we name around school that has speed and velocity?
You'd be surprised at what we can find.
The kids out here are playing tag. We should write that down.
Oh, look the janitor.
Devin and Brodie have homework to list 4 things around school or home that they notice have speed and velocity. They want to get most of their work done at school and start with the playground.
The bus also changes speed and velocity.
Homework : Out on the playground we saw kids playing tag . They were trying to outrun each other and get away by changing their speed and velocity.
Run Fido, run!
Homework : The janitor was moving the cleaning cart around the corner which changed his velocity.
We finally completed our work.
Homework : The bus moved 8 miles in 16 minutes to travel .5miles/min. this gives us the average speed, because the bus changes in velocity at red lights and in traffic the instantaneous speed isn't that accurate.
Homework : Fido was running around the tree in our backyard , he kept changing his direction, meaning he was constantly changing his velocity. You can show velocity through arrows called vectors.
Quick Review : Speed - distance/time, in a certain amount of time you traveled how far, a magnitude of velocity. Velocity - speed in a given direction, change in velocity are changes in speed or direction. Vectors - indicate velocity, velocity is a vector because of speed and velocity
