This web site provides PADs (interactive Java applets) that provide many ways to represent data and evaluate the accuracy of them. These applets allow users to create vectors, graphs, and diagrams and analyze videos and animations. Automated evaluation of diagrams created by students allow these applets to be used as tutorials or in online homework. A help section for students, instructors, and developers is also featured. Multi-lingual support is available.
This resource is part of a Physics Front Topical Unit.
Topic: Dynamics: Forces and Motion
Unit Title: Newton's Second Law & Net Force
This resource is a collection of interactive Java applets that provide multiple ways to represent and evaluate data. As students create vectors, graphs, and diagrams, the program provides immediate feedback. Automated evaluation of diagrams created by students allow these applets to be used as tutorials or in online homework.Link to Unit:
