This scenario is a natural follow-up to the Constant Velocity Matching Game. First, students see graph multiple graphs that depict Postion vs. Time, Velocity vs. Time, and Acceleration vs. Time. They analyze the graphs to determine the type of movement that would produce these graphs. Second, they physically move in the space, attempting to recreate the graphs through their own actions. The source and student graphs are overlaid to reveal similarities and difference.
