Match That Graph

The Match That Graph Concept Builder is comprised of six situations in which a position-time graph is given and the corresponding velocity-time graph must be identified AND six in which a velocity-time graph is given and the corresponding position-time graph must be identified. There are three levels of difficulty by which the student can progress through the Concept Builder. Those three difficulty levels are differentiated as follows:
 
  • Apprentice Level: Situations 1-4
  • Masters Level: Situations 1-8
  • Wizard Level: Situations 1-12

Situations beome more complicated as the level increases. The graphs for each situation are shown below. Teachers are encouraged to view the questions in order to judge which level of difficulty is most appropriate for their classes. We recommend providing students two or more options. For instance, it would be profitable for a student to complete the Concept Builder at the Apprentice Level in order to gain some confidence and then to be challenged to complete the activity at the Masters Level.

The Physics Classroom grants teachers and other users the right to print these questions for private use. Users are also granted the right to copy the text and modify it for their own use. However, this document should not be uploaded to other servers for distribution to and/or display by others. The Physics Classroom website should remain the only website or server from which the document is distributed or displayed. We also provide a PDF that teachers can use under the same conditions. We have included a link to the PDF near the bottom of this page.
