Dots and Graphs

The Dots and Graphs Concept Builder is a tool that challenges the learner to associate the motion of an object with specific features of position-time graphs and velocity-time graphs. Each question in this Concept Builder involves a matching exercise. Three dot diagram representations are presented to the learner and there are six graphs to which they must be matched. Each dot diagram corresponds to only one graph. Once the matches are made, the answers can be checked for accuracy and feedback is given. There are three activities in the Concept Builder - one involves only Position-Time Graphs; another involves only Velocity-Time Graphs, and the third involves a mix of both types of graphs. Question-specific help is provided for each question. Use of this Concept Builder with our Task Tracker system allows teachers to track student progress.
