Position-Time Graph

You can graph motion on a position vs time graph. On a position vs time graph, position is on the y-axis and time is on the x-axis. If the velocity is constant, the graph will be a straight line and the slope is average velocity. If the motion is accelerating, the graph will be a curved line.

Velocity-Time Graph

You can also graph motion on a Velocity-Time graph. On a velocity vs time graph, velocity is on the y-axis, time is on the x-axis. If the graph is a straight line, velocity is constant and the slope is average acceleration. Also, on a velocity vs time graph, the area under the line is displacement.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials
