A followup to "Introduction to One Dimension Motion"
A guided investigation through the mechanics of each motion equation in an effort to give meaning to the units of Displacement, Velocity, and Acceleration.
Utilizes graphing techniques that connect mathematical skills with new understanding of motion. This activity requires students to create a graph that plots the position of an object over time. This graph is then utilized to give what is referred to as a "logical" solution as to when the object is at the highest point, when the object hits the ground, and others. The students are then challenged to algebraically determine and "exact" solution mathematically.
