The Notion of Motion, Part 3 - Average Velocity:

Describe the average velocity of a dune buggy using kinematics in this interactive tutorial. You'll calculate displacement and average velocity, create and analyze a velocity vs. time scatterplot, and relate average velocity to the slope of position vs. time scatterplots.Â

This is part 3 of 3 in a series that mirrors inquiry-based, hands-on activities from our popular workshops.

The Notion of Motion, Part 2 - Position vs Time:

ContinueÂ an explorationÂ of kinematics to describe linear motion by focusing on position-time measurements from the motion trial in part 1. In this interactive tutorial, you'llÂ identify position measurements from the spark tape, analyze aÂ scatterplot of the position-time data, calculate and interpret slope on the position-time graph, and make inferences about the dune buggyâ€™s average speed

Scatterplots Part 2: Patterns, Associations and Correlations:

Explore the different types of associations that can exist between bivariate data in this interactive tutorial.
