Reference: Chapters 1.2, 1.3

Graphing motion is advantageous because quick inspection of a graph gives information about the object's motion. Also by calculating slope and area under graphs, some specific details can be obtained. REMEMBER USE YOUR UNITS!

Know the conversion box diagram for graphing.

Example of Position - Time
Graph and convert to a Velocity - Time Graph for **Uniform Motion**

Example of Position - Time
Graph and convert to a Velocity - Time Graph for **Non - Uniform Motion**

Understand Average Velocity

Understand Instantaneous Velocity

Handout on Different Constant Velocities
