In this activity from the Nuffield Foundation, students match descriptions of a variety of real scenarios involving motion with the corresponding velocity–time and displacement–time graphs. Several issues will be discussed while completing this task and students will also have to consider how realistic or unrealistic the graphs are, in particular whether vehicles are likely to travel at the constant speeds suggested by the models and whether they would be able to change velocities as abruptly as some of the graphs suggest.
