Unit 13 Graphing Assignment
By: Ava Crimmings
-Lucy loves to run. When she sprints, she runs at five feet per second mot stopping until she has run for 30 seconds. Below I have a line graph demonstrating her progress.
-An independent variable is the variable that doesn't rely on another variable. (www.oxforddictionaries.com )
-The independent variable in this situation is the time in seconds. It DOES NOT, depend on the feet.
-The dependent variable DOES depend on the independent variable.
-The dependent variable in this situation is the feet. How many feet she runs depends on how many seconds she runs. The variable staying the same, or never changing.
- The constant variable in this situation is 5 feet. This is because she is constantly sprinting at 5 feet per second. It never changes to 6 or 7 feet, or anything else.
-Example equation for chart.
S= Seconds that Lucy runs
D= Distance total that she runs.
My graph is gradually increasing, because as time passes she is moving further and further away from the starting point.
