Interactive review of the Introductory Physics Unit II "Motion" zip file folder. The program reviews frames of reference; distance and displacement; the relationship between speed and velocity and acceleration. Questions include 21 true/false; multiple choice and text entries/responses. A printable PDF file can be generated from the program that can also be used as a worksheet or as an informal assessment.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and at least two links to short videos to further student understanding. PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject. A class activity is included at the end of each lesson.
