Today we raced! Students ran and race-walked across the gymnasium, while their peers timed them at distances of 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100 feet. Once we had all of our data recorded, we began to analyze it by calculating speed from the distance and time measurements. Tomorrow we will graph and further analyze our data as well as conclude our lab.
We wrapped up Hot Wheels Hustle at the beginning of class then we read about and discussed the difference between speed and velocity. We also watched a music video about speed and velocity by the band They Might Be Giants.
