This monograph was written for the Conference on the New Instructional Materials in Physics held at the University of Washington in summer, 1965. It is intended for use in an introductory course in college physics. It consists of an extensive qualitative discussion of motion followed by a detailed development of the quantitative methods needed to analyze the motions of point particles. There are six chapters in the monograph. Chapter 1 introduces the reader to three views of motion - in art, in words, and in physics. Broad features of motion are described in chapter 2. The concept of vectors and their operations are dealt with in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 explores the relationship of position and time. The distinction between speed and velocity is presented in Chapter 5. Chapter 6 concerns the topic of acceleration. Exercises are included in all the chapters. (LC)
