Students need to use a shortrange motion detector to find the acceleration of a car on an incline. Then the students need to use that acceleration to predict the speed at a certain location along the ramp. The students will then use a photogate to test that prediction 

This challenge activity can be used in conjunction with a lab on photogates to make sure students understand how to interpret the data. Student will measure the distance between two photogates and use the block and unblock times to determine the speed of a constant speed vehicle. This will then be used to find the location of a third, unseen, gate. The data will start getting collected when the car is not at the origin.

This challenge activity can be used in conjunction with a lab on photogates to make sure students understand how to interpret the data. Student will measure the distance between two photogates and use the block and unblock times to determine the speed of a constant speed vehicle. This will then be used to find the time at which the car will reach a third, unseen, gate. 

This activity makes sure that students are able to measure the speed of a vehicle using photogates. The vehicle is described as constant velocity and students are to assess that claim by making multiple measurements of speed at different junctures of the vehicles motion. 

This program will make sure students understand how to find the resistance of a resistor in a circuit with a capacitor. Students will also have to be able to find the charge stored on a capacitor in this circuit. 

This program will make sure students understand how a circuit is affected by a switch that can be used to short circuit one of the resistors. Students will also have to be able to find the charge stored on a capacitor in this circuit. 

This program will make sure students understand how a circuit is affected by a switch that can be used to short circuit one of the resistors. 

This program was to see if students could determine the specific heat of a liquid based on the electrical energy that enters the fluid. Students will need to collect data on the temperature of the fluid based on the time the electrical energy has been entering the fluid. Based of this, they should find the specific heat of the fluid. 

This program was designed to make sure students could find their way around a multimeter. Students will get a series of 19 different questions and they will have to identify the different areas of the meter that will let you answer that question. 

This program was designed to make sure students could find values for a randomly generated sine curve. 

This program was designed as a companion to the pendulum lab using a PocketLab. This program will allow students to supplement the live lab with factors we could not normally test. 

This program was designed to make sure students could find the work function of an unknown metal by collecting data for KE of ejected electrons and the frequency of the light shined on the metal. 

This program was designed to make sure students could get the slope of a linear graph manually. 

This program was designed generate some data for students to graph. This program will be used in the opening week when students are learning how to graph and the definitions of speed and pace. 

This program was designed to allow students to quickly find the relationship between two variables. Students can graph up to 19 data points and find an equation relating the two variables. This program will also allow students to linearize most of the labs they will do in an introductory physics course. YouTube video describing the lab
