Anticipating based on Patterns (Kinematics)

Here is a task I developed to engage students in thinking about kinematics. I’d run this as a think-pair-share type activity. I could see using this early on before students know much kinematics or after students know quite a bit. Lots of different places to go, focus, emphasize, depending on where your students are at, including distinguishing kinematic quantities, assumptions, developing models, changing your thinking as you accumulate more evidence.
