The math word "velocity" is referenced in the pages listed below.
Acceleration is the rate at which velocity (speed) is changing
You are given the velocity of the car at various times. How can you approximate the distance from the car's initial starting place to where it is at the end? A table method as an introduction to integral calculus. Interactive calculus applet.
Approximating distance travelled using a graph. Distance is divided into smaller and smaller segments. Part of introduction to inegral calculus. Interactive calculus applet.
Describes the problem of finding average velocity and speed as an intro to the use of calculus. Interactive calculus applet.

... I have a small favor to ask. Over the years we have used advertising to support the site so it can remain free for everyone.
However, advertising revenue is falling and I have always hated the ads. So, would you go to Patreon and become a patron of the site?
When we reach the goal I will remove all advertising from the site.
It only takes a minute and any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering it! – John Page
