PhET: The Moving Man
Description:
Security note:
Once you have clicked on the "simulation" link below, be sure to read the Java Security Advisory before running the simulation: To do that, click the "Read now" button on the yellow band near the top of the PhET page.

If you'd like to learn about motion, try PhET: The Moving Man, a PhET simulation from the University of Colorado. As you move the man back and forth, the applet generates graphs of position, velocity, and acceleration. There are nice sound effects, too.
