Class practical: It is possible to arrange for trolleys to behave as if they are moving without friction.
Demonstration: This experiment allows you to focus on what happens when a constant force is applied to a trolley: its velocity...
Class practical: This a practical approach to acceleration and its definition.
Demonstration: When free to move, a trolley on an inclined plane will accelerate down the slope. If it is given a velocity up...
Demonstration: This activity uses light beams and timing technology to obtain values for acceleration.
Class practical: Students create velocity-time graphs from their own measurements for different kinds of motion. In a...
Demonstration: This provides an active way to vary measurement of distances, velocities and acceleration.
Examples of using a straight line graph to find a formula.
Imagine a graph plotted with SPEED on the vertical axis against TIME on the horizontal axis.
Using accumulations and vectors to predict routes.
Here students get to see a process from a second point of view, moving with respect to the first, and so get practice in...
Although computer-mediated analysis may dominate your practical work, there is a case for a moderate amount of work close up...
