AP Calculus AB: Motion Topics

Author: Alex G
Description:

Students will be able to determine from a velocity graph:
* sign of acceleration
* forward and backward motion
* total distance traveled
* displacement
* units for velocity, acceleration, and motion

This packet is designed as a study tool in reviewing for the Calculus AB AP Exam. Students should have already been exposed to this information during the school year. This packet is meant to bring all of the separate topics about motion together in one place.
