Examine these scenarios and pay attention to the units.

While walking to school, Jaime's distance from home (in miles) was

, where*t*is measured in hours. Sketch a graph of his distance. If it took Jaimeminutes to walk to school, what was his average velocity? Explain how you got your solution. This is a distance graph. Time,

, should be on the-axis. (It usually is!) And distance,, should be on the-axis. Sketch the graph of.Note that this is the slope of the secant line that connects the points at
