Description:

This interactive lets learners explore the differences in graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration. Set initial conditions and view the graphs simultaneously as the "Moving Man" changes position. You can also program the motion by entering an equation for the position as a function of time. The resource provides sample learning goals as well as user-submitted lesson plans and activities for student groups ranging from the middle grades through high school. This page is part of the PhET collection of free simulations for science education, many of which have been classroom tested.
