Be neat and use lots of creativity and color. The Inside Front Cover Write "Objectives" at the top of the page.  List the following unit objectives: Using distance and time be able to compute speed. Be able to compute average speed from list of speeds. Be able to determine the slope of a line on a graph. Be able to read a distance-time graph and determine the speed. Be able to read a speed-time graph and determine the acceleration. (slope) Given speed and time be able to compute distance. Be able to read and compare racing data from a graph. Know the terms on the study guides. Be able to define the key concepts from each activity. Inside Back Cover Write "Concepts" at the top of the page.  Divide the page into nine squares. Explain the answers to the unit objectives with words and diagrams.   Back Cover Write your name and any additional information.
