Ladybug Motion 2D simulation


  • Position
  • Velocity
  • Acceleration

Sample Learning Goals

  • Draw motion vectors (position, velocity, or acceleration) for an object moving in 2D. Interpret position, velocity, and acceleration vectors for an object moving in 2D.
  • Explain how velocity affects position.
  • Explain how acceleration affects velocity.
  • Explain why the velocity and acceleration vectors behave as they do for linear, circular, and elliptical motion.
