Motion Graphs
DistanceTime Graphs
These graphs show how the distance an object has moved varies with time.
DistanceTime Graphs: Example
Strange things happen in school classrooms!
Measuring Speed from a Curved DistanceTime Graph
The gradient of a distancetime graph represents the speed of an object. If the object is accelerating then its distancetime graph will be curved, but you can still use a tangent to calculate its speed.
VelocityTime Graphs
Not to be confused with distancetime graphs, these show the objects velocity with time. Remember that:

The gradient is equal to its acceleration

The area under the line is equal to its displacement
VelocityTime Graphs: Example A
The skill in answering questions like this lies in interpreting the graph and reading the correct data.
VelocityTime Graphs: Example B
This uses the same data as the previous example, but now we use it in a different way. Take the time to split up the area under the line into simpler shapes and then the maths is easy.
