The Momentum Race is a quick paced software game to see how well and quickly students can calculate or estimate momentum.
The game consists of three levels of increasing difficulty. The three levels are Aliens, Animals, and Weapons. Each level consists of four "objects" that start moving when the Start button is clicked. At this instant the values for the mass and velocity are shown and the objects start to race across the screen. The student(s) must choose the object with the most momentum before the first object reaches the right side of the screen. Scores are kept for 10 attempts and can be added to a high score screen.
A brief review of what momentum is and how to calculate is included.
The software is downloaded as a Zip file. After downloading, extract the files and double click on the html file to start the software.
