On Monday, you rode your bike on the direct road from point A to point B in exactly one hour without stopping.
On Tuesday, you rode your bike on the curvy road from point A to point B in exactly one hour without stopping.
TURN AND TALK: Did you ride your bike at a greater average speed on one of the roads?
The curvy one!
Here's the weird part though:
Your overall (or average) velocity on Monday and Tuesday is the same. But how can that be? It’s because you measure average velocity using only the start and end points and by referring to direction. So if Point B is 15 miles east of point Point A, that means that your average velocity was 15 miles per hour east.
