Welcome to the Uniform Motion Word Problems guided learning activity. By the end of this activity, you will be able to set up and solve various kinds of
uniform motion problems.
If at any time you need help please ask a tutor.
First, you need to open a PowerPoint with a presentation and activities.
to go to the site where the PowerPoint is housed. Click on the word “Motion” to
access the PowerPoint presentation.
Once the PowerPoint is open, read through slides #1-19. Pay particular
attention to the formulas, the distance diagrams and how the
example problems are set up by using a table.
On a separate piece of paper, work
through the four practice problems given in slides #20-22. Make sure to use a
table to set up the problems and draw a picture to determine how the distances
are related. Ask a tutor for help if you get stuck
Check your answers on slide #23. If you did not get all four
practice problems correct, go on to slides #24-37 and determine
where you went wrong. Next to each practice problem on your
scratch paper, write down in complete sentences what you did
wrong and what steps you can take so that you will not make the
same mistake again in the future.
Let’s see how much you have learned by
completing this quiz.
Use a blank
sheet of paper for your work. Once you are done, ask a tutor to go over your quiz results and the
self-evaluation with you.
That's it! Thank you for taking the time to learn
about solving uniform motion word problems.
