This worksheet packet provides students with practice drawing and interpreting displacement vs time and velocity vs time graphs. This practice works well alongside the Graphing Motion Walk Around, Motion Graph Matchmakers, and Motion Graph Scavenger Hunt.
Given displacement vs time graphs showing constant velocities, graph the motion in a velocity vs time graph. This practices slope calculations and graphing constant velocity.
Given velocity vs time graphs showing constant velocities, graph the motion in a displacement vs time graph. This practices drawing in motion at the correct slope to show constant velocity.
Given displacement vs time graphs showing accelerating motion, graph the motion in a velocity vs time graph. This practices slope calculations and graphing velocity to show that it changes as the slope changes. If constant acceleration is assumed, the velocities will just be joined by straight line slopes. This also does a good job of showing that velocity crosses the x-axis when the object changes direction.
Area and Velocity vs Time Questions
In the final three pages, students answer questions based on velocity vs time graphs. Many of the questions focus on finding displacement with area under the curve.
For each of the pages in this packet, detailed solutions are provided. When I use this in my class, I post the solutions for students to check their answers as they go.
This worksheet packet and more are being compiled this page as they are added
