Table of Contents
1. Learning to Use a Motion Detector
     Learn to use a Motion Detector.
     Measure the distance between a book and the Motion Detector.
     Match a shape by moving a book up and down above a Motion Detector.

2. e-Motion!
     Explore the different lines and curves produced by moving in front of the Motion Detector.
     Learn to write detailed steps for creating an M or W shape on the graph.
     Match different letter and designs drawn on the graph.

3. Spring into Action
     Graph vertical simple harmonic motion.
     Find how long it takes to make one complete cycle, or period.
     Find out how the period is affected by pulling the spring further down.

4. Air Ball!
     Use a Motion Detector to measure how high a basketball bounces.
     Find out how the height is affected by air pressure in the ball.
These activities also require a GDX-GP Vernier Go Direct Gas Pressure Sensor

5. Driving with Energy
     Vary the amount of potential energy in a toy car.
     Use a Motion Detector to measure the movement of a toy car.
     Define kinetic and potential energy.

6. Weigh Station—All Trucks Stop!
     Use a Motion Detector to measure the time it takes a truck to go down a ramp.
     Predict what will happen as you add weight to the truck.

7. Batty About Science
     You will lean how bats sense their prey by pretending that the Motion Detector is a bat and that you are its prey.
     Discover how this movement is graphically represented.
