In this interactive, students compare the speed of the racehorse Man o’ War to other famous racehorses, a cheetah, a track star, and a middle school student. Students discover the direct proportional relationship between distance traveled in a set time and speed, and the inverse proportional relationship between speed and the time it takes to travel a set distance. In the accompanying activity, students complete a chart based on data from the interactive and make observations about the relationships that the data represent. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
