Newton's Law: A Computer-Based Simulation for Introductory Physics. Technical Report No. 1.
Lunetta, Vincent N.
This report describes four individualized programs which simulate physical experiments in force and motion, graph and data collected by individual students, and provide feedback to each student relative to his generalizations. An overview of the unit is provided, descriptions of the unit and accessory materials are presented, sample runs of the four programs are included, and instructional objectives are listed. Instructions given the students concerning procedures for running the programs, instructions for the teachers in regard to use of the programs, and evaluation instruments are included. One section of the report describes a study which evaluated the classroom use of these computer-based simulation programs. Finally, the program and file listings for each of the four programs, and non-computer simulation problem sheets are provided. (DT)
