Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
archery

Acceleration is the rate (how fast) at which velocity changes 

  1. speeding up (faster if Speedend - Speedstart is positive)
  2. slowing down or deceleration (slower if Speedend - Speedstart is negative)
  3. turning (direction)
Opposite: Constant velocity is when speed and direction do not change.
accelerometer

An accelerometer measures changes in acceleration or jerk.

Electronic acelerometers are used in cars to set off airbags and in runners' speedometers.

LadyBug Motion Vectors or rays are arrows that can show velocity and acceleration.
formula
The formula for acceleration is (final speed - initial speed) / time. or ( Speedend - Speedstart ) ÷ time
Change in speed is (Speedend - Speedstart)
formula
Galileo Gravity
Scientist

Galileo Galilei experimented with gravity by dropping things from a tower, rolling things down ramps, and observing the planets and moons of the solar system.
