*** Ver 2.0 - Significantly improved accuracy of motion graph interaction. Existing users please update ***
This Exploriments Motion App lets you explore the difference between distance and displacement through the use of motion graphs and trails. The app consists of a series of interactive activities including interpretation of motion graphs & trails, calculating distance from displacement and constructing distance-time & displacement-time graphs. Each activity includes exercises that can be repeated many times with varying scenarios.
The Exploriments Series of interactive simulation-based tools makes conceptual learning in science an engaging and insightful experience. Visit www.exploriments.com to know more.
Comparing Distance and Displacement
--- Introduce concept of Displacement as a vector quantity
--- Compare displacement with distance through motion trails and graphs
Introduction to Negative Displacement
--- Highlight that displacement can be negative as compared to distance
--- How negative displacement is represented on motion graphs
Constructing Distance and Displacement Motion Graphs
--- Construct Distance-Time and Displacement-Time graphs, based on motion trails
Interpreting Displacement Motion Graph
--- Construct Displacement-Time graph based on a Distance-Time graph
--- Generation of real-time motion graphs synched with trails of the moving object
--- Construct motion graphs interactively
--- Repeat and revise with interactive exercises having varying scenarios
--- Numerical and graphical output
What's New in Version 2.0
Significantly improved interaction for the interactive motion graphs. Includes a magnifier feature that allow the users to accurately place the curve points on the interactive motion graphs.
Minor bug fixes and interaction enhancements
iOS 6 FREEZE issue FIXED - The critical bug faced on iOS6, where the app would freeze when you tried to set a point on the interactive graph is fixed in this version.
Existing app users on iOS6, please update to this version immediately to ensure a working app.
