Short Description: None Provided

Students often get confused by the difference between Instantaneous and Average. In this video we use a graph to compare and understand the two different concepts.

Content Times:

0:28 Defining Instantaneous and Average Velocity

0:52 Examples of Each

2:23 The Graph

2:42 Walking the Graph (my favorite part)

3:19 Average Velocity from 0 - 5 Seconds

5:30 Average Velocity from 5 - 10 Seconds

6:45 Some Instantaneous Velocities

7:44 Average Velocity from 0 - 17 Seconds

8:37 Drawing this Average Velocity on the Graph

9:15 Comparing Average Velocity to Instantaneous Velocity

10:32 What was the Instantaneous Velocity at exactly 5 seconds?

11:47 The Review
