Velocity and Distance-Time Graphs

If something has velocity it has both speed and direction.

Speed is just how fast you're going. Velocity is also how fast you're going but it must also have a specified direction.

Distance-Time Graphs

The gradient of a distance-time graph tells you how fast an object is travelling. This is because the gradient is the change in the distance (verticle axis) divided by the change in time (horizontal axis).
