Teaching young mathematicians to use consistent units in their expressions as well as numbers, Sal demonstrates several ways to translate speed units in pre-algebra. He encourages viewers to memorize common speed units, such as the amount of feet in a mile, in order to facilitate problem-solving.
In this speed and acceleration worksheet, students complete math word problems having to do with speed and acceleration. Students complete 13 problems.
Observiing the atmosphere is always a fascinating past time. In this science lesson, learners are encouraged to observe the wind speed and cloudiness present each day. The observations take place over a period of three days, and each learner keeps a record of their observations. Everyone compares their results.
In these calculating speed, distance, and time worksheets, 6th graders review information, formulas, and examples, and solve word problems calculating average speeds, distance traveled, time taken, convert time measurements and speeds, and complete distance-time graphs. Students solve 51 problems.
In this speed activity, high schoolers calculate acceleration and deceleration and compare speed with velocity. Students complete 6 matching, 8 fill in the blank, and 6 word problems.
In this speed worksheet, learners investigate the relationship between speed, distance traveled and time traveled. Students use hot wheel cars, a ramp, some  books and a photogate to measure data using different experimental variables. Learners answer six post lab questions about their conclusions.
Really neat! Kids choreograph a dance phrase and then measure the distance and speed of the phrase using a timer and a meter stick. They collect the data on a table which they use to determine an average. A series of observation and critical-thinking questions makes this an amazing integrated activity incorporating the arts. 
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.
Discover how speed is defined and calculated. The narrator thoroughly describes speed in this short video. Great graphics are played throughout.
Studying spiral galaxies can make your head spin! With this video, find out how astronomers calculate a galaxy's rotational speed, and how the prediction that the outermost stars slow down does not seem to be true. The mystery may be solved by the presence of mysterious dark matter. Perhaps by showing this, you can inspire your space scientists to be the one who finally proves its existence! Because of the brevity of the clip, you may want to simply embed it within your own presentation.
In this science worksheet, 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.
Students calculate the speed of an object, by measuring the amount of time it takes to cover a given distance, and then divide: speed=distance/time. However, the object may not have been moving at a constant rate over the given distance. Thus this calculation would give students the average speed.
In this science instructional activity, students solve each of the word problems on speed machines using the formula given and rounding their answers to the nearest tenth. Students also fill in the boxes and use a calculator to determine how long it would take each machine to get to travel 60 miles.
In this acceleration and average speed worksheet, learners learn the equations for acceleration and average speed. They match 6 variables with their quantities, they identify speed vs. velocity and scalar vs. vector and they solve 4 problems for speed or acceleration. They analyze 2 graphs and find the acceleration and the regions indicating constant speed, deceleration and acceleration.
Eleventh graders calculate solar wind speed given a set of data. In this earth science lesson, 11th graders predict what time the aurora would most likely be seen on Earth. They convert measurements from one unit to another.
For this average speed worksheet, learners calculate the average speed of a ball rolled down a ramp using graphs and calculations.
In this graphing speed instructional activity, students find the slope in a position vs. time graph to be the speed. They are given example graphs of position vs. time to show the changes in slope reflect the changes in speed. Students match terms with their definitions and they analyze 5 graphs of position vs. time.
In this speed of a galaxy worksheet, students use a given equation for the speed of an object and they use the spectral lines for Hydrogen Alpha and Beta from the Seyfert galaxy to answer 6 questions. They determine the observed wavelengths, the rest wavelengths, the velocities of the wavelengths and if the galaxy is moving towards or away from the Milky Way Galaxy.
In this speed worksheet, students solve 9 problems using the equation the distance an object travels equals the speed of the object multiplied by the time it travels. Students identify the unkown in each problem, show their work and give their solution.
Students interpret a variety of motion graphs. In this physics lesson, students calculate the speed and acceleration of objects using numerical data from graphs. They apply what they have learned to solve real world problems.
