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.

Bumps and Buckles: A Lesson on Motion
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

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.
