Sunday song: Speed and Velocity

It’s fitting that I’ve just covered these topics in both my Calculus I and Calculus III classes this week… thanks, They Might Be Giants!

Speed and Velocity

When I’m on an airplane
And we’re on a runway
Ready to take off
And then we’re in the air!

Motion, direction, acceleration…
Motion, direction, acceleration…

I’ve got speed (that’s how fast I am moving).
I’ve got velocity (that’s my speed and direction).

When I’m on my Big Wheel,
Skateboard,
Roller coaster,
Race car,
Motorcycle,
Rocket ship
Into outer space.

Motion (keep movin’, keep movin’, keep movin’),
Direction (which way, anyway, uptown, all around),
Acceleration (let’s go faster!),
Acceleration (let’s go faster!).

I’ve got
Speed (that’s how fast I am moving),
I’ve got velocity (that’s my speed and direction),
I’ve got speed (that’s how fast I am moving),
I’ve got velocity (that’s my speed and direction).
