Analysis Questions: Tortoise and the Hare

1. Using your graphas a reference, fill in the missinginformation in the tables below. HARE

 Time (min) Distance (m) 7 14 17 21 24

TORTOISE

 Time (min) Distance (m) 1 8 15 17 21 24

2. We use Distance v. Time graphs to calculate Average Speed! (slope = d/t = speed)

a. What is the equationfor average speed?

b. What is the Tortoise’s​ ​average speedafter 5 minutes? (*Hint: How will you find

the total distance in order to solve the equation for average speed?)

c. What was the Tortoise’s​ ​average speedfor the entire 500m race?

3. What does the word constantmean?

a. Identify a time intervalfor the TORTOISEthat he was traveling at a constant speed?

b. How do you know? What does the shapeof the graph tell you about his speed?

4. In what Time Period(from what time to what time) was the hare moving at the

greatestspeed?

a. Calculate the speedof the hare from 0-5 minutes:

b. Calculate the speedof the hare from 12-20 minutes:

c. During which time interval was the hare going at a faster speed?

5. During what Time Period(s) in the race was the hare stationary(not moving)?

a. How do you know? Use the SLOPEof the line from the graph to support your answer!
