        Images of the Past | Texting How Far?

        The Dangers of Texting While Driving - During this lab your students will participate in a hands-on activity in which they will convert miles/hour to ft/sec. They will calculate the speed of an object. Then, they will calculate how far an object travels in a specific time based on a given rate. Next, they will test how long it takes to send and read a text message. The times obtained will be used to calculate how far a car travels at different rates during a text message. Finally, they will learn about Thomas L. Fawick of Sioux Falls, SD who built the Fawick Flyer, which was the first four-door automobile ever manufactured in the U.S. (Download the lesson plan below and locate a student handout in the Support Materials section.)
