Velocity is a measurement of speed and direction. When the velocity of an object is reported, the direction is indicated by the sign: a positive number means that the object is moving forward, and a negative number means that the object is moving backwards. The speed is indicated by the magnitude of the number.

A student drives three different toy cars at different velocities. She dries each car at the same velocity for one minute, and then switches to a different velocity. She only drives the cars straight forward or backward; they never go from side to side. The details of her experiment are shown in the table. Speed is measured in feet per minute.

At 1:45, Car 2 was travelling…

All the cars started from the same starting point. At the 1:59 minute mark, how much further ahead was Car 2, compared to Car 1?

About This Quiz & Worksheet

The questions on this quiz will present you with a variety of scenarios related to data representation. These situations will be presented through text and they will also be shown visually. You will then need to glean important information from the data and correctly answer the given questions. Use the quiz to prepare for such questions on the ACT test's Science Reasoning section.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

The quiz will test you on the following topics:

  • Interpreting graphs
  • Calculating the speed at which a car traveled
  • Measuring the distance between two cars that started from the same point
  • Understanding velocity
  • Determining how long it takes for a mealworm to lay the first of its eggs

Skills Practiced

You will practice these skills:

  • Making connections - use understanding of the concept of data representation
  • Interpreting information - verify that you can read information regarding the speed of a car and interpret it correctly
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding the length of time it might take for a mealworm to lay its egg
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer a question about the speed at which a car travels in a given scenario

Additional Learning

After you finish the quiz, head over to the related lesson, Practice with Data Representation Passages on ACT Science Reasoning. This lesson covers the following topics:

  • Explaining the data representation section of the ACT
  • Exploring how to read charts and tables
  • Describing strategies for interpreting data correctly
  • Walking through example problems
