Concept Checker for River Boat Simulation

Our Concept Checker for the River Boat Simulator consists of 32 questions organized into 8 Question Groups. Students must correctly answer one question from each Question Group to earn the Trophy for this Concept Checker. 

Like all our Concept Checkers, it is designed to be used as a follow-up to the use of the River Boat Simulator. We recommend the use of our classroom-ready exercise with the simulation.

The Concept Checker targets student understanding of the following learning outcomes:
  • The student should be able to describe the effects that variations in river width, boat speed, and river speed have upon the time to cross the river and the distance traveled down the river.
  • The student should be able to explain the significance of the phrase perpendicular components of motion are independent of each othter.
