Look at each graph below and write a story or description about what each graph shows.  

How does the graph show the speed changing? Does the way the speed is changing stay constant?

  1. First quadrant graph, x-axis labeled, time in seconds, y-axis labeled, miles per second. An increasing line starting at the origin.

    The graph shows a steady increase in speed.

  1. First quadrant graph, x-axis labeled, time in seconds, y-axis labeled, speed in miles per second. A curved line, starting at the origin, rises sharply at first, then rising more and more gradual, becoming a horizontal line.

    The graph shows a quick increase in speed then levels off at certain speed.

  1. First quadrant graph, x-axis labeled, time in seconds, y-axis labeled, speed in miles per second. A curved line starting at the origin, rises gradually at first, then becoming steeper and steeper.

    The graph shows increasing acceleration, speed increases more and  more quickly.
