One Dimensional Motion


One Dimensional Motion

Logo for One Dimensional Motion
This lab activity allows the students to investigate the basic concepts behind one-dimensional motion and their relationship to one another.  The students use motion sensors to match graphs of displacement vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time.  This follows an introduction of the key terms but precedes any other activities involving these concepts.

Hey Brian, I'm having trouble loading the lesson. Could you possibly send this one Via E-mail? I will write again, but I wanted to get something down in Merlot. :)
