Physics Unit 2 - Motion Graphs

High School, College, and AP Physics 1

Free Course! Test out Physics Course Online with this thorough course covering Motion Graphs!

A graphical analysis for Physics is common and can be confusing for many physics students. I have found it is easiest to understand how to apply a graphical analysis to physics through the use of motion graphs. In this course I will guide you through the many applications of graphing in physics and apply it directly to kinematics concepts. My students in the real world often find this topic to be confusing in the beginning, though as they progress through the steps they tend to hit that "light bulb" moment with both graphing AND understanding kinematics concepts more thoroughly.

In this course we will review many aspect of graphing and connecting this to motion. Specifically we will cover an in-depth analysis on position vs. time graphs, velocity vs. time graphs, and acceleration vs. time graphs. We then shift to a more real world analysis of motion using some nifty video and graphical analysis tools.

I am offering this entire course for free. I am confident you will enjoy these videos and will likely be surprised how interesting motion graphs can actually be.

Corey Mousseau is a highly qualified classroom science teacher in New York State. He has been teaching physics and related courses in NY State for over 15 years.

Physics is often overwhelming for many students. Over the years Corey has mastered the art of exciting students into falling in love with this wonderful field of science. Through a blend of conceptual understanding, demonstrations, and quantitative analysis Corey has found the correct formula for engaging individuals into highly successful physics students.

Corey holds a degree in secondary education in physics as well as a master's degree in integrating technology in the classroom. He a high school Cross Country Coach, a Science Olympiad Coach, and a New York State Master Teacher. Corey has a lovely wife, two young boys, and teachers at Plattsburgh High School in upstate NY.

While at Plattsburgh High School (PHS) Corey has had the opportunity to teach many different courses which have all had a focus on excellence, rigor, and mastery.

Courses Corey currently teaches during the traditional school day:

  • AP Physics 1
  • AP Physics 2
  • NY State Regents Physics
  • AP Physics C: Mechanics
  • Robotics 1
  • Robotics 2
