Graphical Response Exercises for Teaching Physics
Bonham, Scott
Physics Teacher, v45 n8 p482-486 Nov 2007
What is physics without graphs and diagrams? The web is becoming ubiquitous, but how can one expect students to make graphs and diagrams on the web? The solution is to extend functionality through Java applets. Four examples of exercises using the Physics Applets for Drawing (PADs) will illustrate how these can be used for physics instruction to evaluate student work and provide different levels of feedback.
