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.

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 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.

In this animated object, learners examine the situation that occurs when any two links of a mechanism lie in the same plane or on a straight line. Crank-sliders and crank-rockers are shown.

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 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.
