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 page ONLY of Graphic Analysis of Motion WS (position vs. time).  ANSWER KEY.  Quiz on graphic analysis of motion on Thursday, September 20th!
