Return to the classic word problem with these speed scenarios. Learners use some combination of the variables speed, distance, and speed to solve six problems, all of which ask for one of these as an answer. The examples do a nice job of walking them through the formula, but the format of the questions will still keep scholars on their toes as they are constantly looking for a different variable.

Writing Task 6.RP.2
Angela and Esteban are both fast, but who is faster? This exit card provides the time and distance ran by each child, and requires young mathematicians to use ratios to determine which of the two is the faster runner. A perfect resource for concluding a math lesson on rate and speed, this assessment will provide teachers with a clear picture of student learning.

Deep Impact Comet Encounter
Physics apprentices analyze the impact of NASA's Impactor as it collided with the comet Tempel 1 in July of 2005. They calculate the mass and speed of the comet, along with the distance it might drift off of its orbit over time. This worksheet is a fascinating problem solving exercise that you can assign to your physics learners as an enrichment when studying velocity.

In this science activity, students create a race track and mark each distance as stated. Then they perform each task and record the time it takes them for each. Students also record their data from the experiment into the chart illustrated and use the information to calculate the speed for each task and distance.

Running at a Constant Speed
The learner must use the given constant speed to find the unit rate. A table is made in order to relate the speed to the time and the distance. From the table, learners are able to see the unit rate in miles per minute and miles per hour, a simple exercise in solving unit rate problems to constant speed.

What is the Formula Connecting Distance, Speed, and Time?
The formula for uniform motion, meaning something is moving at a constant speed, is d=rt. This involves distance, rate, and time. If the word problem gives two of any of these values, the third unknown value can be found.
