Product Description
OVERVIEW

The Motion Problem Challenge software requires students to solve motion problems in a game like format.

Product Type: Software - Game, Challenge, Problem Solving, Simulation
Curriculum: Physics / Mechanics / Kinematics - Solving Motion Problems
Level: Grades 9-12 & college, algebra based

Objectives: 1) Be able to solve real life motion problems
2) Be able to take distance measurements
Time To Use: ~ 45 minutes or one period of instruction

INSTALLATION

The software is downloaded as an executive (.exe) file which, when double clicked, will install the Motion Problem Challenge software on your computer.

System Requirements: PC Computer with Windows XP or later

MORE INFORMATION

In each of five "real life" situations, students must take a measurement, figure out the known and unknown values, choose an equation, and solve for the unknown. Each problem has a directions screen which explains the problem scenario to the student.

Each time a problem is presented, the variables are randomly generated, so each problem will have a different solution. This makes it impossible for students to get a good score by guessing at the correct answers.

Students then choose their answer by moving a slider with the mouse. At this point a simulation illustrates the result and shows whether the calculated input answer was correct. If incorrect, students are shown the correct answer and get another try at solving the challenge problem.

Each problem is worth 10 points and students lose 2 points for every incorrect try. The maximum score is therefore 50 points. When the students have completed all of the problems, a scoring screen is displayed.

The Motion Problem Challenge software can be used in place of a worksheet for practice of, as a final review before a test on, or as a test of solving motion problems.

Descriptions, screen shots, and sample solutions for each problem are provided in the Free Preview Download.
