  • Position
  • Velocity
  • Acceleration

Topics

  • Position
  • Velocity
  • Acceleration

Description

Learn about position, velocity, and acceleration graphs. Move the little man back and forth with the mouse and plot his motion. Set the position, velocity, or acceleration and let the simulation move the man for you.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Interpret, predict, and draw charts (position, velocity and acceleration)for common situations.
  • Describe his/her reasoning used to make sense of the charts.
