1.) Introduce Mathematical Modeling as a problem solving 2.) Identification of required information. 3.) Gain skills in obtaining information. 4.) Explore ideas of motion in relationship to velocity as a Rate of change and representation as a slope of a line. 5.) Show examples of constant motion as a linear relationship, And instantaneous velocity as a curved graph. 6.) To be able to explain the differences between average velocity, Average acceleration and instantaneous velocity by graph study. 7.)To devise simple mathematical models.
