Kinematics continued this week in Physical Science

With AzMerit testing there will be less time in class than usual, but we will continue our discussion of kinematics this week. The concepts of velocity and acceleration will be further flushed out, and we will begin an introduction to momentum.

For 5 points of extra credit, students can provide a written response to the following question on Tuesday:

A student records her odometer and time as 19,652 miles and 7:19 am when she leaves home; when she arrives at school, her odometer and time readings are 19,659 miles and 7:32 am. What was the students average speed on the drive to school?

All work must be shown, and the answer should be written with 3 significant figures. This problem should take your student 10 minutes at most.
