Goal: Hone the concept of displacement
Bekki walks 3 m to the right, 4 m to the left, 5 m to the right, and 2 m
to the left. What is her displacement?
- 0 m
- 2 m
- 2 m (to the right)
- 2 m (to the left)
- 14 m (to the right)
- 8 m to the right and 6 m to the left
- impossible to determine
- none of the above
(3) Students need to distinguish between distance and
displacement. Questions such as this are good introductions to vectors.
