This physics video tutorial explains the concepts behind position, distance and displacement. It shows you how to calculate the average speed and average velocity using total distance and displacement over a time interval. This video contains plenty of examples and word problems for you to practice on.

Here is a list of topics:

1. Total Distance traveled vs Displacement

2. Displacement Definition - Change in Position - Final Position minus Initial Position

3. Scalar vs Vector Quantities - Magnitude and Direction

4. Displacement Calculations Using a Number Line

5. Pythagorean Theorem - East, North, West & South

6. Special Right Triangles

7. Average Speed and Velocity Formula / Equation

8. Solving Average Speed Word Problems

9. Calculating Average Velocity Using Displacement and Total Time

10. Position Formula With Velocity - Slope Intercept Form

11. Sketching a Position vs Time Graph

12. Average Speed and Velocity practice problems

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral

Students show better Interpersonal Writing skills than Speaking via @SpiralEducation Great #data #langchat folks!
