Today we were given the task torecord the speeds at which cars were vrooming down the casual yet exuberantCooper Rd. we had to find two points of measurement over a 30 meter span. We recordedthe speeds of ten different cars to get a comprehensive understanding of howthe calculations work.

Step 1: we measured out 30 meters ofthe side of the road

Step 2: we had a person at each end,with one in the middle, and another one off to the side recording data.

Step 3: When the car passed thefirst end (point A) the person there yelled to start recording.

Step 4: at that time, the person inthe middle (point B) and the person at the end (point C) would start theirstopwatches.

Step 5: when the car passed theperson at point B, the person there stopped their stop watch and recorded theirtime

Step 6: when the car passed theperson at point C, they stopped their stopwatch and recorded their time aswell.
