## Learning Targets

**2.01A -**I know the difference between position, distance, and displacement (change in position) and I can determine each.

**2.02A -**I can interpret/draw position-time graphs in terms of the direction of motion, starting position, relative speed, and whether it shows constant velocity.

**2.02B -**I can interpret/draw position-time graphs with uniform acceleration.

**2.03B -**I can calculate the velocity or speed from a position-time graph for an object moving at constant velocity over a specified time interval.
