What to study
- 8 vocabulary words: reference point, position, motion, displacement,
speed, constant speed, average speed, and velocity.
- Know what is needed for a complete description of an object's
position: 1. reference point 2. direction 3. distance
- Be able to map out directions using graph paper, a compass rose,
-Study pg.13 in textbook-How to know if an object is in motion.
Also, look at examples of distance and displacement.
-Know some units for speed (pg.17)
-Study distance/time graphs (pgs.20-21) What does constant speed
look like on a graph? Also, how can you find the speed between 2 points
on a distance/time graph?
-What is the difference between speed and velocity? (pg.23)
