|Title||The "Lifelike" Moving Man: Variation in motion graphs|
|Description||This lesson was designed to help students interpret motion graphs from motion detector data (with more variation and error than the "ideal" graphs they had been analyzing). Learning goal: Students will be able to identify the following types of motion -- constant nonzero velocity, constant acceleration, not moving -- from graphs that are not smooth. This lesson will come at the end of the kinematics unit, so they should already be able to interpret smooth, error-free motion graphs.|
