Distance time graph at a glance

 

A distance time graph shows how the distance of an object from a given point varies over time. On any distance time graph, a positive gradient indicates the object is moving away from the point and a negative gradient indicates the object is moving toward the point.

 

If the object is travelling at a constant speed, this will be shown as a straight line on the graph. A horizontal line represents a period of time when the object is stationary. 

 

We can draw a distance time graph given some key information about a journey. We may need to use the formula for speed calculations, \text{Speed} = \text{Distance} \div \text{Time} to calculate unknown values.

 

When interpreting distance time graphs, the journey can be described one section of the graph at a time. It is important to remember that the total distance travelled must include all distances travelled in both directions and that the average speed of the object is calculated by dividing the total distance travelled by the total time of the journey.

 


Looking forward, students can then progress to additional rate of change worksheets and other ratio and proportion worksheets, for example a ratio worksheet or a simplifying and equivalent ratios worksheet.
