This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 9, Unit 2, Grade 6. This activity gives students first-hand experience in relating ratios of time and distance to speed. Students time one another as they move 10 meters at a constant speed-first slowly and then quickly - and then reason about the distance traveled in 1 second. Along the way, students see that the language of "per" and "at this rate," which was previously used to talk about unit price, is also relevant in the context of constant speed.
