Lesson Plan: Speed Physics

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the speed of a moving object as the rate of change of the distance that the object moves during a time interval.


Students will be able to

  • recognize that a distance can, but does not need to, correspond to motion in a straight line,
  • use the formula 𝑠=𝑑𝑡 in all combinations,
  • distinguish between constant speed and average speed.


Students should already be familiar with

  • distance.


Students will not cover

  • displacement,
  • velocity,
  • graphs.
