Modeling More Real Motion

Continue practicing the skills you just developed in Activity 5. Using Activity 6 below, draw a position vs. time graph that represents the motion of the car described in this scenario:

A car is sitting at a stop light. When the light turns green, the car accelerates up to 40 mph, then holds that speed. The car then enters a school zone and decelerates to 25 mph. After the school zone, the car accelerates to 30 mph and holds that speed. Finally, the car slows down and comes to a stop at another stop light.
