Excerpt

Could You be an Olympic Champion?

What you need: a tape measure or a trundle wheel and a stopwatch.

o Your task: Measure out 100 m on the school sports field.

1. How many steps do you need to take to:

a. walk 100 m?

b. run 100 m?

2. If you could walk/run at the same rate as for 100 m, how many steps would you need to:

a. walk 1 km?

b. run 1 km?

3. How long does it take you to:

a. walk 100 m?

b. run 100 m?

4. If you could walk/run at the same rate as for 100 m, how long would it take you to:

a. walk 1 km?

b. run 1 km?

5. To work out your speed in km/hour, do the following calculation.

For example, If it takes me 360 seconds to run 1 km, then my speed in km/hour is:

Now find your speed in km/hour.

6. A cheetah can run at 80 km/hour. How long would it take to run 1km?

7. An elephant can run at 10 km/hour. How long will it take to run 1km?

8. Are you faster or slower than the elephant? By how much?
