The website contaiins a shockwave movie quiz. The quiz test your understanding of motion. This is done by showing various path of a car and asking you to recognize what is happening in terms of acceleration and velocity. The shockwave movie is goes with the activity sheet for Name that Motion.

Please note that this resource requires Shockwave.
