Speed as a Compound Measure

Students learn how to calculate speed as a compound measure of distance and time.  As learning progresses students begin to manipulate the speed, distance and time formula to calculate any measure using the other two.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate speed using the S=D/T triangle.
  • Most students should be able to calculate speed as a compound measure of distance and time.
  • Some students should be able to convert between units of speed using equivalent ratios.
