Motion & Derivatives David Darr Alex Grady Andrew Helmlinger
Can a Bloodhound be faster than a speeding bullet? If it’s a BLOODHOUND SSC, it can! ◦ Pencil-shaped car ◦ Jet engine and rocket ◦ 1,000 miles/hour (1,609 km/h) ◦ Goal – break land speed record ◦ Late 2011or early 2012
Math Time Mr. Helmlinger, math teacher, in the year 2040
The Derivative Slope
Slope of the tangent line???
…Now put that into symbols See the similarities?
What did we just do? Why do I care?
Physics Time Mr. Grady, physics teacher, now and later
Experiment Today we will explore the linking element between position, velocity, and acceleration. ◦ Get into groups ◦ Pick up supplies from the front
