written by Glenn Elert
This page offers a clear explanation of the equations that can be used to describe the one-dimensional, constant acceleration motion of an object in terms of its three kinematic variables:  velocity, displacement, and time.  A set of problems accompanies the text, giving students practice in conceptual, algebraic,  calculus-based, and statistical questions.  This is part of an online textbook in introductory physics.
