**JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Stage 1- On the Move**

**Learning Tasks:**

- Do Now- On the lined piece of paper: Describe a play in football (or a homerun in baseball or movement in any sport). Watch the video. Now explain that play using
**scalars**(**distance, speed**) and**vectors**(**displacement, velocity**). - Continue to work on the following reading assignments:

Articles

*Talking About Motion*– This article describes how all motion is relative to a reference point. The article also covers the difference between distance and displacement and the use of vector arrows to describe movement.*Rates of Change*– This article defines rate as the amount of change in any measurement over time and gives several examples.*Speed- A Scalar Quantity*– This article discusses three different ways to examine speed–instantaneous, constant, and average speed. The article also describes why speed is a scalar quantity and how to calculate and graph speed.*Velocity- A Vector Quantity*– This article defines velocity as a vector quantity representing both speed and direction and distinguishes it from speed. The article also describes how to calculate and graph velocity.
