Students often struggle to understand graphs in physics. This lab turns graphing motion into a fun activity by having students run around, record each other, and see how graphs are applied to everyday life.
Students will run through a simple course performing various activities. Afterward, they will graph the motion of their movement through the course.
6 cones (field markers)
phones to record or a stopwatch
proper clothing to be active
