App Store Description

*** 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.


Activities Included:

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


Additional Features:

--- 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
