Illuminations: Single Runner

In this activity, students use a software simulation of one runner along a track.

Students control the speed and starting point of the runner, watch the race, examine a graph, and analyze the time-versus-distance relationship. This activity helps students understand, describe, and compare situations involving constant rates of change.
