Toy car to intervals to data: A physics lab

Today’s purpose in Physics with teacher John Cox: To find the relationship between position and time for a toy car. A computer plays a ‘knocking’ sound every second, and students mark (with a marker or penny) where the toy car is at each knock. Then they gather the data on worksheets and will use that data to prepare a chart showing the relationship between distance and time. Different groups have different objectives to measure.
