Foundations 2

Read the bottom of p.160 through the top of p. 161.

Now take a road trip.  If you don’t drive, ride with a friend, or ride the bus.  Think about what you are feeling as the vehicle starts, speeds up, moves, slows down, and stops.  Considering the position of the vehicle as the function, explain what you notice in terms of the function and its first, second, and third derivatives.  How do you measure each of these, both by using the vehicle’s instruments and by what you feel acting on your body? 

Note:  Be safe!  Obey speed limits and other laws of the road.  You can test these phenomena without driving fast.
