Welcome to the Maths Faculty at APS!
In this activity you will explore the idea that the area under speed-time graphs can be used to find the distance travelled, you will also use triangles and trapezia to estimate areas under curves.
Using the powerpoint ‘FSMA Speed and distance student’ study carefully then try the below:
- The ‘Think about’ points in part A introduces distance travelled, you should recognise the value of 140 and when it occurs and what it represents.
- Now make sure you try all the student worksheet questions using the information given in parts A & B
- Read through sections C and then attempt the questions in section D; these will be more challenging and those of you searching the internet will find lots of useful links there are a couple below.
