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.
Cherilyn from Colorado told me about a site of lesson plans and lots of downloadable materials authored by Deborah Carder of Arkansas. Cherilyn has been using this site as a guide for her first year of teaching physics. I can see why, it’s loaded with great ideas. Deborah has the entire year mapped out from the first to last day of school. Included as downloadable files are worksheets, lab files and Powerpoint files.
I plan on downloading every single file and going through it with the intent to steal it all. Before you think poorly of me, Deborah gave me permission to use as much as I like on this site. I’m an honest thief, I will certainly credit her for all of her hard work.
Thanks to Cherilyn and Deborah.
