ab: Summary: The genesis of the concept of velocity refers to a centuries-old
search within the context of motion. This led to Newton’s definition
which is still taught in school. The historical development shows that
both mathematics and physics classes have their respective
characteristic manner using this term. However the mathematical
potential for teaching this concept is by far not exhausted.
