Direction Of Instaneous Velocity
I am wondering if someone could possible explain the direction that instantaneous velocity possesses without actually having to use the word "tangent," or explanations containing that word. Is it possible? I feel like if we explained it in different terms--especially for me!--we would understood more intuitively.

Tangent just means parallel. The velocity is parallel to the trajectory at that point.
