TLF ID M014001

This is a teacher resource for motion in a straight line consisting of a website and a PDF with identical content. It contains discussion of the concepts of position, displacement, velocity, acceleration and speed. It shows how these concepts may be used to motivate the study of calculus and at the same time demonstrate its utility. The Links forward section considers a brief discussion of vector calculus. The resource is important for an understanding of calculus. A history of motion in a straight line is presented.
