# Graphing Motion

## Use the slope of a graph to determine instantaneous velocity or acceleration for an object.

Levels are CK-12's student achievement levels.
Basic Students matched to this level have a partial mastery of prerequisite knowledge and skills fundamental for proficient work.
At Grade (Proficient) Students matched to this level have demonstrated competency over challenging subject matter, including subject matter knowledge, application of such knowledge to real-world situations, and analytical skills appropriate to subject matter.
Advanced Students matched to this level are ready for material that requires superior performance and mastery.

## Graphing Motion

Students will learn how to graph motion vs time. Students will learn how to take the slope of a graph and relate it to the instantaneous velocity or acceleration for position or velocity graphs. Finally students will learn how to take the area of a velocity vs time graph in order to calculate the displacement.
