Motion Lab in Physics

In light of recent lessons about motion, AP Physics 1 is using motion sensors to track their position as it varies with time. Working as a team, each lab group tried to match a graph of position vs. time by telling their lab partner when to walk quickly or slowly and forward or backward. This lab helped students see how formulas and theories they’re learning in class apply to real problems and situations. We believe that experiences like this help students grasp and remember concepts for the long term!
