1 Level A6 of challenge: C A6 Mathematical goals Starting points Materials required Time needed Interpreting distance time graphs To enable learners to: interpret and construct distance time graphs, including: relating speeds to gradients of these graphs; relating accelerations to changes in these speeds. Learners have often constructed distance time graphs before. However, experience shows that many still interpret them as if they are pictures of situations rather than abstract representations. In addition, they also find it difficult to interpret the significance of the gradients of these graphs. In this session, learners begin by discussing a question that is designed to reveal common misconceptions about distance time graphs. They then work in pairs and threes to match descriptions, graphs and tables. As they do this, they will interpret their meaning and begin to link the representations together. OHT 1 Speed and acceleration: car; OHT 2 Speed and acceleration: motorbike. For each learner you will need: Sheet 1 Journey to college; Motorbike and car; Sheet 2 The race; mini-whiteboard. For each small group of learners you will need: Card set A Descriptions; Card set B Distance time graphs; Card set C Distance time tables; Card set D Speeds and accelerations. Approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. Level of challenge: C A6 1

3 What learners might do next Further ideas Reviewing and extending learning Ask learners some show me questions using mini-whiteboards: Show me a distance time graph for: a car travelling at a steady speed; a car speeding up; a car slowing down; a stationary car; two cars travelling at the same speed towards each other; a car is crawling along in the slow lane and a car overtakes very quickly; a child runs into the road, so the driver has to make an emergency stop; a car slows down as it goes over a speed bump, then goes quickly again. Finally, encourage learners to tackle the problem in Sheet 2 The race. This will help to consolidate what they have learned during the session. Invite learners to create their own distance time graph and a story that matches it. Ask learners to exchange stories and try to recreate the graphs from the stories alone. Finally, compare the resulting graphs with the originals and discuss the discrepancies. This activity uses multiple representations to deepen understanding of distance time graphs. This type of activity may be used in any topic where a range of representations is used. In this pack, other examples include: N5 A1 Understanding the laws of arithmetic; Interpreting algebraic expressions. Level of challenge: C A6 3

5 A6 Sheet 1 Journey to college; Motorbike and car Journey to college Every morning Jane walks along a straight road to a bus stop 160 metres from her home, where she catches a bus to college. The graph shows her journey on one particular day. Write a description of what may have happened. You should include details such as how fast she walked. Motorbike and car This graph shows a vintage car and a motorbike travelling along a country road. Write a description of what is happening. At what time are they travelling at the same speed? A6 5

13 A6 Sheet 2 The race The graph shows the motion of two racing cars as they approach and go round a bend on a racetrack. 1. How far along the track is the bend? 2. Make tables to show how the distance travelled by each car changes with time. 3. How does the distance between the two cars vary? 4. How does the time interval between the two cars vary? 5. Can you work out the deceleration and acceleration of each car? 6. During motor racing events, it seems that the car in front loses some of its lead when it approaches a bend, and then opens up a gap again afterwards. Why is this? Are the chasing cars really catching up? A6 13
