Acceleration (velocity time graphs)
This resource is aimed at KS4 students and is useful as it covers the following learning objectives...

- Identify the equation that links together acceleration, velocity and time.

- Describe the difference between speed and velocity, using an appropriate example.

- Explain how to calculate the acceleration and distance travelled by an object from the gradient of a velocity time graph

- Apply your understanding of dt and vt graphs to complete multistep calculations, and calculate a new velocity for a moving object that has accelerated for a given time.

- Link your understanding of dt and vt graphs to compare and contrast the different features of the graphs.

There are differentiation opportunities for lower and higher ability students (check the green challenge questions). I have also included feedback boxes, in which you should put students names to keep individuals engaged and ready to learn and feedback.
