Lesson

Motion Mapping with Your iPhone

 

This lesson has students explore the shapes of position vs. time graphs resulting from constant velocity and accelerated body motion. Through the "Game" mode of LiDAR Motion Visualizer, learners move back and forth from a flat wall to match pre-made graphs. The student worksheet provides a space for learners to explicitly reflect on what they have learned, including the meaning of position vs. time graph slopes and y-intercepts.
