### Spark Timer Motion

Students will use a spark timer to record the motion of two toy cars.

### Measuring Constant Velocity

Students will graph the position vs. time of a moving car. The graph will be a straight line whose slope is the car's velocity.

### Analyzing Motion

Students will use Constant Velocity Cars and track position vs time results to grasp what constant velocity motion is.
