1-D Kinematics: Describing Motion with Words
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this unit students will learn how to analyze the motion of objects. Students will begin to make a mathematical connection with words that describe motion. This unit will focus on several examples of vector and scalar quantities (distance, displacement, speed, velocity, and acceleration). As students proceed through the lessons, they should give careful attention to the vector and scalar nature of each quantity. This tutorial also includes animations of each of the major concepts. At the end of each lesson students can check for understanding of concepts by answering concept questions.

Overview:

This app for iPad devices is a fully interactive atomistic simulation that shows the motions of atoms as they attract, repel, and collide with one another. With the tap or swipe of a finger, students can add, delete, or highlight molecules, as well as increase/decrease temperature, pressure, or volume and explore the states of matter. An associated simulation, Salts, allows students to manipulate atoms and ions to join to form crystals.

Overview:

In this lesson, students will learn that forces can change the speed or direction of motion. Students will observe what happens to a toy car as it moves down a ramp and then encounters "speed bumps" that are added at different lengths away from the ramp. Students will also add a clay figure to the top of the cars to see what effect the ramp and "speed bumps" will have on the figure.
