Homework - brainstorm a notation for keeping track of how far an object moves AND in which direction it travels, e.g. a man walks 20 meters eastward, then 20 meters northward, then 10 meters westward; can you write this in a way that the sum of these three motions gives you the man's final position?
discuss briefly the history of modeling motion
differentiate between average and instantaneous speeds and define constant speed
determine if a toy car moves with constant speed
create a scatter plot of the motion of a toy car and discuss the significance of its slope
Homework - read to p. 11 in the booklet (Physics: An Introduction); do the 6 math questions on p. 10
define distance, displacement, speed, velocity and acceleration
"read" position, velocity and acceleration graphs and relate them to one another
