Distance, Time, Velocity and Rates of Change - March 2006, Stage 2&3

Problems

You Tell the Story

Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Can you create a story that would describe the movement of the man shown on these graphs? Use the interactivity to try out our ideas.

Two Clocks

Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

These clocks have only one hand, but can you work out what time they are showing from the information?

Take Your Dog for a Walk

Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Use the interactivity to move Mr Pearson and his dog. Can you move him so that the graph shows a curve?

How Far Does it Move?

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects the distance it travels at each stage.

Decimal Time

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Use the clocks to investigate French decimal time in this problem. Can you see how this time system worked?

Speeding Up, Slowing Down

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects its speed at each stage.

Up and Across

Stage: 3 Challenge Level:

Experiment with the interactivity of "rolling" regular polygons, and explore how the different positions of the red dot affects its vertical and horizontal movement at each stage.
