Tremendous... looking forward to doing this with my students tomorrow!
OK, this is absolutely fabulous.One suggestion (as if someone wouldn't make one):Would it be possible to have the moving image at the top leave behind a 'ghost' every del_t=0.5s or 1s to show a 'motion map' in real time as the object moves? My students seem to have the most trouble making the connections between the motion map or ticker tape image and the graphs. SEEing them all together would be very powerful.Nice job, Matt!!
OK. This is brilliant. Gonna be a while before I process it. But it's brilliant.Must stop playing now. Must plan for College Algebra.
Thanks for playing!@Gonzo - Working on it, but it is a much slower process during the school year. Check back for updates within the next few weeks, and new physics games coming soon!
My students will love this Physics game ;)Great job.Regards,JG
WOW nice games you have! cool man!
I would like to pass on the Algebra and Geometry teachers... Are there any instructions?
Instructions added to the first level! Thanks for playing!
I just spent half an hour playing your game and I'm a neurology major in university who hates physics! Continue doing what you're doing man, you're really making a difference to a lot of kids with your passion.
Level 11 has a mistake, the ball moves twice as slow as it should, the correct answer for the first clock is 2 m/s, but the ball only goes by 1 m/s. each point in the graph is 0.5m, not 1m... unless i fail at this! xD
The object doesn't move for the first second, then moves 8 m in 2 seconds (4 m/s), then doesn't move for the last second. I think that it's correct as is.Thank you for playing!
This is the sort of thing I want to do. What do you use to create it?
Good to hear it, Rocky! I use mainly Adobe Flash for the animations, artwork, and coding (ActionScript 3.0). For artwork, I use Flash in conjunction with Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop, and for sound and music mixing I use Audacity and Re-cycle. Feel free to send me an e-mail if you have any questions on how to get started making apps and games for your students - it works wonders!Thanks for playing!
Hey Matt,This great stuff, buddy!I'm assigning it as homework.I'm sure this would be a huge request, but if you wind up making an HTML5 version or an app eventually, that would be a cool bonus.Miss you,Leiffrom Jewell, IA
This works so well with the modeling physics curriculum. Couldn't have asked for a better help for struggling students.

wtf! is this rocket science game?
