This site provides a simulation of a ball rolling on a segmented ramp.  The user can set the ball's initial position and velocity and the geometry of the ramp.  The applet then displays the motion of the ball as well as position, velocity, and acceleration graphs in real time.  The site also provides drawing tools for users to draw graphs by hand that match the simulated motion.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
