Title: Visualisation of Kinematics graphs for Secondary Combined Science
Post by: weeboon2406 on November 04, 2012, 03:47:40 pm
Wrote a simple program to help students relate shape of graph --> motion and to clear up misconceptions between acceleration and speed in kinematics
(http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=2601.0;attach=5014)
Students tend to think speed = acceleration, which hopefully will be cleared up when they relate this to motion of object
Allowing students to run through different scenarios should help to clear up some confusion between different terms as well as graph shapes through a guided worksheet

Hi, Good Job!

I hope your students have enjoyed your simulation. I think it is always awesome and cool to customize our simulations for our teaching.

Hope that you will continue EJSing!
