Plot a distance time graph for both the hare and tortoise on the
Use your graph to
• Calculate the speed of the tortoise.
• Calculate the fastest speed of the hare
Take the following text and use it to produce a table of velocity and time. Then
plot a velocity time graph and work out the race distance.
The winner took 7 seconds to
reach her top speed of 10 m/s.
She ran at this speed for 10
She was running at 8 m/s when
Her finishing time was 24
Time (s) Velocity (m/s)
Cheetah HuntUse the velocity time data to plot a graph.
Mark points of acceleration, deceleration and steady speed.
Change the data into a brief description of the hunt.
Calculate the acceleration and deceleration of the cheetah.

tachographs. This monitors journeys driven in the truck to
ensure the driver is acting safely.
