Capture, Code, Compare: Integrating computational modeling with video analysis

March 9, 2020 by W. Brian Lane

Capture, Code, Compare activities combine hand-on labs with computer modeling.  Students use video tracking to capture the motion of an object, code a model that reproduces the behavior of the physical system, then compare the quantitative results of the video analysis with the results from the computer model.  I'll go through an example of one of my activities in an introductory mechanics course.
