In this screencast, you'll observe two vehicles moving across the screen at different rates then describe the motion. Additionally, you'll select the corresponding graphs of distance vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time for each vehicle.

Learners review the fundamental laws of algebra including the commutative law of addition, the commutative law of multiplication, the associative law of addition, the associative law of multiplication, and the distributive law. Examples are given.

An Algebraic Word Problem Involving Motion: Case 2

In this animated object, learners use an algebraic formula to solve the following problem: An airplane travels a certain distance with the wind in the same amount of time that it takes to travel a shorter distance against the wind. Given a constant wind speed, what is the speed of the plane without a wind?

In this animated object, learners examine automated manufacturing systems classified as motion control, batch process control, and continuous process control.

In this interactive object, learners experience how the three primary flight controls allow a pilot to determine the motion of the airplane during flight.

Learners read definitions of the terminology associated with algebraic operations and then follow steps to use the fundamental laws of multiplication to simplify algebraic expressions.

Learners read definitions of the terminology associated with algebraic operations and then follow steps to use the fundamental laws of division to simplify algebraic expressions.

In this object designed for instructional assistants, learners read about the laws that pertain to student school records. Three case studies are presented and learners write about how they would respond in these situations.

Learners examine an animated motion-controlled robotic arm and observe the operation of a PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative) control that makes movements quickly without overshooting or having a steady-state error. This activity has audio content.

In this animated object, learners examine the operation of a closed-loop system that maintains the speed of a conveyer belt as heavy boxes are placed or removed.

Learners study the method of using more than one track and quadrature modes to improve the resolution of an optical encoder. A brief quiz completes the activity.
