The Acceleration Game software helps students to gain a "gut" understanding of acceleration by playing two games. The first requires them to set the acceleration and acceleration sign to guide a car around a race track. This is very difficult uncles students are very clear on the meaning of positive and negative acceleration. The second requires them to set the acceleration and direction of a space ship to hit space objects. This is difficult since once the ship gains velocity it must be turned around and accelerated in the opposite direction to slow down.
The game keeps score as students take 10 trys at two different race car and two different space missions. They can add their scores to a high score table. There is also a two player race car game and an asteroid bonus game for no points just for fun.
The Acceleration Game software is provided as an exe file. Double click on the file to load the software.
