Distance Time Graphs

Distance-time graphs are a way to show data about how someone or something is moving over time.

I have used my cycling data as an example.

Here's a map of a 24km bike ride I did last week:

Here is a table showing how long it had taken at each kilometre of the ride...

Time elapsed (nearest minute) Distance (km)
10 1.4
20 3.5
30 5.7
40 9.5
50 11
60 13.6
70 16
80 19
90 21
100 24

 From this I can draw a graph. Watch these videos which show you how to draw and interpret a distance-time graph. Have some squared paper, ruler and pencil to hand so that you can draw the graph as well as you watch. 

If you haven't got any squared paper at home you can use this Printable Graph Paper

Today we are converting between grams (g) and kilograms (kg) using a calculator.

 There are 1000g in 1kg. 

Example:

3000g = 3kg   

Because 3000 ÷ 1000 = 3 

Example:

2.5kg = 2500g  

Because 2.5 x 1000 = 2500 

Here’s two short video clips which go through this (in the video it shows you a non-calculator method for multiplication and division of 1000. HAVE A GO at this but you can also use a calculator if you want).

Playing the game closest to 1000:

 

If you have a mini-whiteboard or a chalk board that’s ideal as you can rub out and start over but otherwise a piece of paper is absolutely fine.

Make a grid like this:   

 


You can see it looks like an addition sum. The idea of the game is to get as close to 1000 as you can. Roll the dice and put the digit in one of the boxes. Take it in turns to roll the dice and make sure to put the numbers in the boxes as you go along and not all at the end! After 6 rolls you have made your sum so add the two numbers and see how close you are!
