Students sometimes have a difficult time understanding what acceleration in meters per second squared really means. Therefore, I present acceleration as meters per second every second instead. This helps students gain a better conceptual understanding of acceleration.

Content Times:
0:12 Acceleration is meters per second every second
1:22 The first demonstration
1:56 Finding the velocity at each second
3:18 Finding the position at each second
4:31 The second demonstration
