Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
speed gun  An object is in motion when its distance from a reference point changes.
runners
Average  speed is: total distance in a given or total, time.  (Like from the start to finish line.)
(The opposite is instantaneous speed, speed at a given moment in time like on a roller coaster.)
Speed does not give a direction travelled. 
(Speed = Distance ÷ Time)
missile
Velocity is speed in a given direction.

prediction Vectors or rays are arrows that can show motion and forces.
prediction

 Ways to describe motion with math include:

  1. vector arrows or rays. can show velocity or direction and distance
  2. The equation: speed = distance ÷ time
  3. A line graph with time as x, and distance as y
  4. A map, diagram, or other graphic.
LandSpeed
Scientist

Land speed record.: The science of aerodynamics and wheels.

Technology

The wheel allows rotational motion to help move things with less friction.
