These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:
- Identify an object that has a higher speed because it travels further in a given time
- Identify an object that has a higher speed than another when they travel different distances in different times
- Calculate the average speed of an object using speed = distance ¸ time
- Explain why the average speed may be different to the instantaneous speed of an object
- Identify when speed is changing the most quickly and acceleration is biggest
The resources include details of common misconceptions and a summary of the research upon which the resources are based.
Download the zip file for all the questions and activities.
