How well do you understand motion graphs?

Today, we'll be using our devices to investigate the motion of a cart rolling down a ramp.  We will try to find a mathematical model for the relationship between the angle of the ramp and motion of the cart. 

We're going to be taking video of the situation, and using Logger Pro to analyze the video.  Directions for video analysis.

Homework:   If you are able, please upload the videos onto your Google Drive so you can share with your lab group.  Alternatively, use your home computer to put the videos on a USB drive or make sure to bring your computer cable to school Thursday so you can upload quickly.  You may also want to bring your laptop into school so that you all can analyze the data at the same time. 

If you haven't already, check out the video below on analyzing motion in LoggerPro.  Sorry for the low res.  You don't have to analyze your actual data tonight.  Just watch the video so you know what to do during next class.  Remember, if you are willing to bring your laptop to school next class, it would be helpful.
