Today, we'll first finish looking at  Intro to Kinematics.  

Then, we'll take a look at the motion of two different classmates graphically.  We'll take data and add that data to the class spreadsheet on Google Classroom.  Then, before we actually analyze the data, we'll try to predict several different types of graphs that can represent the motion.  We'll draw these graphs on the board for the first trial.

Homework:  After writing a few sentences describing in plain language the motion of each person.  Also, predict what an additional graph would look like for each trial.
