Average and Instantaneous Velocity
In this activity, students use a Smart Cart Motor attached to a Smart Cart to investigate the differences and relationship between average velocity and instantaneous velocity. The motor is used to move the cart at a constant velocity, a non-constant velocity, and an increasing velocity. For each run, the students determine the average velocity by finding the slope of a position versus time graph and calculate average velocity using the change in position and time of the entire run.PreviewDownload
