This e-book features 12 investigations using our Vernier Video Analysis® app. It builds on basic concepts of motion and applies them to various sports (e.g., curling and weight lifting) and interactions between objects, such as a physical pendulum and a cart. The investigations in this e-book use real-world examples to help students connect physics concepts to their lives.
