Lesson Plan: Calculating Speed from Distance–Time Graphs Science

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to determine speeds from distance–time graphs.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • calculate the gradient of a straight line,
  • compare the speed of an object as shown by one part of a distance–time graph to another part.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • uniform speed represented on distance–time graphs by a straight line,
  • the steepness of a line on a distance–time graph representing a greater speed.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • average speed,
  • displacement,
  • acceleration.
