Distance-time graphs



We don’t need to use distance-time graphs to describe and understand the motion of an object, but doing so can make our lives much easier.  In this video, we’ll work from basic distance-time graphs which describe the motion of objects which are stationary or moving at uniform (constant) speed up to those which describe non-uniform motion.

Please note that this video includes some higher tier-only content.
