Lesson Plan: Acceleration over Distance and Time Physics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to calculate acceleration using an object’s initial velocity, its displacement, and its acceleration time using the formula 𝑠 = 𝑒𝑑 + 1/2π‘Žπ‘‘Β².


Students will be able to

  • derive the formula 𝑠=𝑒𝑑+12π‘Žπ‘‘οŠ¨ from a velocity–time graph,
  • derive the formula 𝑠=𝑒𝑑+12π‘Žπ‘‘οŠ¨ algebraically,
  • use the formula 𝑠=𝑒𝑑+12π‘Žπ‘‘οŠ¨ in all combinations.


Students should already be familiar with

  • π‘Ž=Δ𝑣Δ𝑑.


Students will not cover

  • nonuniform acceleration,
  • 𝑣=𝑒+2π‘Žπ‘ οŠ¨οŠ¨.
