Tom Rocks Maths Appeal Video 2 – Distance-Time Graphs

Lesson 2 in our new Tom Rocks Maths Appeal YouTube series is OUT NOW! 

Team Maths Appeal (me and Bobby Seagull) have joined forces with the University of Oxford mathematician,Dr Tom Crawford (aka Tom Rocks Maths) to explore and teach topics from the GCSE Maths syllabus. We aim to show the world that maths is accessible to everyone!

In this episode we teach Distance-Time Graphs. Tom introduces the topic, Bobby applies it to Usain Bolt’s 100-metre world record, and Susan uses an interactive resource on GeoGebra to check the learning
