 conduct a practical investigation to gather data to facilitate the analysis of instantaneous and average velocity through:
 quantitative, firsthand measurements
 the graphical representation and interpretation of data (ACSPH061)
 calculate the relative velocity of two objects moving along the same line using vector analysis
 conduct practical investigations, selecting from a range of technologies, to record and analyse the motion of objects in a variety of situations in one dimension in order to measure or calculate:
 time
 distance
 displacement
 speed
 velocity
 acceleration
 conduct a practical investigation to gather data to facilitate the analysis of instantaneous and average velocity through:
