# Speed Vs Time Graphs

Students learn how to plot and interpret speed vs. time graphs.  By considering the direction of the graph students understand how an acceleration and retardation correspond to a positive or negative gradient.  As learning progresses displacement is measured by calculating the area under the line.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to recognise a positive gradient as increasing velocity and a negative gradient as decreasing velocity.
• Most students should be able to plot a velocity – time graph and calculate the area under the line to measure displacement.
• Some students should be able to sketch a distance – time graph from a velocity time graph.
