Modeling Real Motion with Graphs

Now we're going to reverse the situation. Using Activity 5 below, draw a position vs. time graph that represents the motion of the soccer player described in this scenario:

A soccer player is leaving the field after practice when she realizes she left her ball near the opposite goal. She runs across the field at a constant velocity. She stops briefly to pick up the ball. Then, she runs back across the field, starting at the same speed but slowing down as she goes due to exhaustion.
