A distance-time graph is a useful way to represent the motion of an object. In this class, students will be guided through how a distance-time graph is set up so that they will be able to draw one themselves. Students can also expect to learn how to interpret the graph and calculate the speed using a distance time-graph. While this class is aimed at Years 7 - 9, it is also beneficial for older students as this topic is covered in both the Higher and Foundation GCSE curriculum.
