Title: Motion in One Dimension
Description: This hands-on exercise allows students to view and calculate the various factors involved in one-dimensional motion. Students will use remote control vehicles to illustrate the linear motion. Students will use the information gathered from the motion of the remote control vehicles to solve various equations for velocity, acceleration, distance traveled, or time. Students will then represent the relationships between these factors graphically.
