As with any sport, ice skating can be analysed in graphs. Consider the following graph below, excerpted from the upcoming Volume 9 of

**by***Glide, Spin, & Jump! The Science of Ice Skating***Schottenbauer Publishing**.__Discussion Questions__

- What body parts are moving in this example?
- Which body part moves the most in the x direction? In the y direction?
- What is the name of this move?

Now, consider the following pictures, excerpted from the video. (This move is shown in the YouTube Video

*.)***Cool Skating Move**__Discussion Questions__

- Is this move in the first or second half of the graph?
- What is the primary motion which occurs between these two pictures?
- What concept(s) from physics are relevant for this move?
- Is this move found in (a) figure skating, (b) ice hockey, or (c) both?

The diagram below highlights the move on the graph.

__Discussion Questions__

- Which body part moves the most during this segment of the graph?
- Which body part moves the most in the x direction? In the y direction?

Additional free graphs are available in a free pamphlet from the publisher's webpage.
