## Take Your Dog for a Walk

This is a series of interactive pages on distance-time graphs. It is like having a motion sensor when you don't have a motion sensor.

Take Your Dog for a Walk
A clever interactive introduction to rate via distance-time graphs. The full-screen version would be useful if this is done as a whole class activity.

Motion Capture
Motion capture is a similar program but graphs displacement rather than distance, so it may be useful to introduce the concept of first and second derivatives.
