Learning objects Where does speeding get you?

TLF ID L53

Steer a rally car around a track. Adjust speed and direction, then calculate average values. Analyse distance travelled, time taken, speed, velocity, displacement angle and direction. Explore the difference between scalar and vector values. This learning object is one in a series of three learning objects. The series is also packaged as a combined learning object.
