This is an introduction to solving word problems on uniform motion using the formula rate x time = distance. Six problems are introduced, and preliminary pictures are drawn. All problems are solved in subsequent videos.

  • What are uniform motion word problems?
  • How do you solve uniform motion problems?
  • How do you solve equations using the formula rate * time = distance?
  • How far can you go if you drive 3 hours at an average of 40 miles per hour?
  • How do you do factor labeling in math?
  • How do you cancel out labels in word problems?
  • How can you draw and use pictures to solve word problems using the formula d = rt?
  • Where can I find a bunch of uniform motion word problems?
  • What are some different kinds for uniform motion problems and what do the sketches of their drawings look like?
This video just introduces 6 different uniform rate problems that are to be solved in 6 subsequent videos. The video explains how to decipher the information in the word problem and how to draw a picture from this information. Each problem is a little different as different scenarios are discussed in each problem. This understanding of how to tackle the problem will prove to be very helpful once we start trying to solve these problems.
