The graph below records the distance a bicyclist travels from Oshkosh to a town
Describe the velocity of the bicyclist.
The velocity is the slope of a distance graph.
The velocity is always positive. The bicyclist accelerates between
and and then de accelerates between and . S/he is moving fastest at .
What was the bike's average velocity
Average velocity between
Approximate the bike's instantaneous velocity at
IROC at a point
slope of the tangent line at that point.
