How Fast Was That Truck Going, Anyway?

Students investigate speed, acceleration, and velocity of a vehicle.  In this speed, acceleration, and velocity of a vehicle lesson, students collect data on the motion of a vehicle rolling down a ramp.  Students make a scatter plot of average distance and average speed over time.  Students discuss the slope, y-intercepts, and the shape of the graph.
