Today, we'll start to take an in-depth look at graphs describing motion.  We'll learn to interpret displacement vs. time  graphs by answering the questions on page 1 of the Ostrich & Cheetah WS.  We'll also revisit the second trial from our experiment outside.  (See Google Classroom for class data.)  Eventually, we'll be able to derive equations of motion from those graphs. 
Homework:  Finish the first half ONLY of Graphic Analysis of Motion WS (position vs. time).  ANSWER KEY.  Quiz on graphic analysis of motion on Friday, Sept 22nd, but we'll  probably start new material before then.  If you need extra support, read sections 2.1 and 2.2 in the text.
