This resource from Inquiry Maths explores the interpretation of distance-time graphs.
Distance-time graph begins with a distance – time graph for students to discuss. The graph has axes but the axes are not labelled with a scale. The graph dips below the time axis at one point. Dan Meyer’s 3-act lesson is discussed and suggested for use when exploring this prompt. Two alternative prompts are also suggested. One suggestion is to give a speed – time example, the second is to start by describing a journey in words.
