        Analyzing Functional Relationships: Traffic Waves

        In this interactive, learn about traffic waves and interpret graphs showing how cars change speed throughout traffic waves. In the accompanying classroom activity, students predict the shape of speed versus time graphs for cars as traffic waves unfold. They check their predictions as they explore and interpret graphs in the interactive. To get the most from the lesson, students should be comfortable comparing distance–time graphs to identify greater speed. Students would also benefit from familiarity with graphs of speed over time.
