This resource is an introductory kinematics lab in which students use a motion sensor to analyze position, velocity, and acceleration vs. time graphs.  Designed for use with Data Studio software, it provides step-by-step directions for setting up the interface with the sensor and tips on scaling the graphs.  Students then graph data and compare to their own hypotheses.  After analyzing simpler types of movement, the task is to think in "reverse" to match movements to more complex pre-drawn graphs.  This item is part of a larger collection of labs for introductory physics by the authors.
