Investigation of Distance and Time Graphs Using a CBR

Unit 1: Introduction to Functions
Lesson 8 of 13

Objective: SWBAT analyze and draw the graphs of distance over time, as well as determine the increasing, decreasing, and constant intervals.

Big Idea: To match graphs to a student walking in real time to develop a conceptual understanding of distance over time and compare it to speed over time.
