Graphing and Motion Tutorial

The purpose of this tutorial is for you to explore and then understand different ways of representing motion: seeing the motion, describing the motion, and then graphing the motion.  As you open each page, you may need to click on a link to load an animation and then push the "play" button to start the animation.  You can click on graphs to read values off of them and if you get a good graph, you can right-click on the graph and then re-size it to look at it more closely.
