Desmos Ramp Simulator and Activity Builder

September 26, 2015

Here is a desmos file I made earlier today, where you can explore motion on frictionless ramps… nothing special.

I also turned it into a activity builder, where students

(1) Share their answers about how to find the acceleration from the simulation

(2) Make a prediction about what an acceleration vs angle graph will look like

(3) Teacher projects the overlay of all students’ points as they flesh out more and more of the graph

Desmos is working on a qualitative sketch feature, so that students can make qualitative sketches that also can overlaid.

Here is a link to the activity file:

To try the activity from the student perspective, you can go to student.desmos.com and enter the code: “5HQC”
