Java Applet for Velocity & Acceleration

Posted on: November 2, 2008

This is an interactive applet that allows the student or teacher to change the velocity and acceleration of a car.  There is a graphical representation of the car and the velocity vector as it moves across the top of the screen.  On the bottom are three graphs that show the distance v time, the velocity v time, and the acceleration v time.  I wish I had found this a month ago, it would have been helpful explaining these principles.

Looks as though the page has moved or the link is damaged…

All better. The page had moved.

What’s New in 2013/2014?

Every year brings a change, this one is no exception.

I will be picking up the sophomore honors Algebra II class to keep them separate from the juniors. This should help accelerate them and put them on a stronger track towards Calculus. Looks like there will be only one section each of Physics and Calculus, but still two of Robotics & Engineering.

Hot topics this year are going to be the Common-Core Standards, Standards-Based Grading (SBG), improving AP Calculus scores, and somehow adding Python, maybe as a club.

Polls in the sidebar

Just a quick poll to help me understand who is stopping by my blog.

Yeah sure, lots from America, but look who else is here…

If you are badly in need of more email or for some reason jonesing for a physics fix, enter your email address so I can bother you with my newest rant on science.
