Chapter 1: Speed and Measurement

In Chapter 1 students will go back in time to world without modern units (such as feet, meters, seconds, hours, etc.). They will design and construct devices to measure the speed of their classmates and then learn about measurement and conversion while sharing and converting their data.

Students will also become familiar with calculating average speed and the limitations this can bring.

Finally, students will apply what they learned to measure the speed of the cars in their neighborhood.
