For this analysis of motion lesson plan, students use a power supply, powerhouse, track and a hot wheels car to calculate the velocity and acceleration of the car on the track when accelerated by a "powerhouse". Students graph the velocity vs. time and acceleration vs. time and answer questions about their results.
