The graph below shows the distance from a fixed point traveled by a toy car. Use the graph to sketch a velocity graph for the car. 

Notice that shortly into the car's journey, it changed directions and started moving back towards its starting position. How will this be reflected on a velocity graph?

A steep negative slope on a distance graph will be plotted as a very low -value on a velocity graph. A steep positive slope on a distance graph will be plotted as a very high -value on a velocity graph. No slope on a distance graph will be plotted on the -axis of the velocity graph.
