## Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Moving into Motion Graphs - Section 2: Moving Man Simulation Activity

Because of my past experiences with hovering, I'm constantly talking to myself (silently, of course) with some dialogue.  For example:

1)  Have you been to see Jimmy in the last 5 minutes?  Ok, since it seems like you were just interacting with him, go check on John.

2)  I'm standing next to Suzy as I survey the class and it seems like I've been standing here a while.  I don't want her to get uncomfortable, so I'm going to walk over and stand next to Jill.

3)  Oh dear, I've been helping Don for quite a while, let me go over here and make sure Justin is doing ok since I haven't had a meaningful conversation with him yet today.

Discourse and Questioning: Avoiding Hovering

# Moving into Motion Graphs

Unit 1: 1-D Kinematics
Lesson 4 of 9

## Big Idea: How can students relate kinematics graphs with descriptions? Today, we use a simulation to connect the dots of position, velocity, and time!
