Minds On Physics the App - Part 1
By Physics Classroom, LLC
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Minds On Physics - the App is the mobile version of the popular Minds On Physics Internet Modules found at the publisher's website. Affectionately known as MOPs, this physics learning tool delivers a collection of questions that target students' misconceptions and misunderstandings. Immediate feedback, opportunities for self-correction, and question-specific help abound. MOPs blends the need for careful reading, logical reasoning, and physics understanding in an effort to produce a confident and able physics student.
Part 1 of this six-part series includes 29 missions pertaining to topics in kinematics, vectors, and projectiles. Three of the 15 modules in the Minds On Physics Program are included in this app. These include the Kinematic Concepts, the Kinematic Graphing, and the Vectors and Projectiles modules.
What's New in Version 2.2
This version was built to provide compatibility with iOS 10. The problem of screen shrinking on start-up that has occurred for iOS 10 users has been resolved.
Additional improvements include the provision of a pop-up number pad for entering answers to numerical questions without needing to use the native keyboard - a welcome addition for all iOS users. Finally, bugs preventing the showing of certain Help screens were fixed.
App is terrible. Not only is the interface outdated, some questions are broken (I worked through problems with my teacher and got them correct and the thing said it was wrong). Whoever rated 5 stars must be using windows 95, because that seems like it's about the only thing it's compatible with.
So this app allows use of 3 modules. But if I get assigned a different module a week later, i have to pay for another app with those modules on it? Ridiculously stupid. Not to mention the computer version uses outdated software that hasn't been used since 2002. Great idea from a bunch of educators or whoever made this up.
Buttons are difficult to press, there's way too many hurdles to go through to navigate to what you want. The app feels like it was designed by a programming student rather than a pro. Not worth the money since the webpage version is free (although also outdated and barely works)
