Weekend HOMEWORK  (Due Mon. Sept. 16, 2013) --
Challenge Problemf
Look closely at the diagram to the left.  The little green stick-figure person started at point A.  She walked 10 km (KILOMETERS) from A to B.  Then she walked another 10 km from B to C.  Finally she walked 10 more km from C to D.

1.)  What was the total DISTANCE she traveled in METERS (m) ?

2.)  What was the total DISPLACEMENT of     her trip in METERS (m)  ?

* HINTS....  Remember that:  
  • 1 km = 1000 m.
  • Distance tells HOW FAR someone traveled.
  • Displacement tells how POSITION CHANGED.

During the first few days of school, students were asked to write down words or phrases that came to mind when they heard the word "Physics."  Here are the results, color-coded by class:
