New Functions and Evaluation for Learning Effects of Acceleration Experiment Support Software

Takahiro Hoshino, Yuki Ota, Kohei Tomaru, Yoshio Hamamatsu, Takafumi Komuro


In Japan, junior high and high school students typically learn the concept of velocity by experiments with a timer and recording tape. To promote more intuitive understanding and provide a flexible lesson length, we developed the AES (Accelerated Motion Experiments Support) software and experimental system. To verify the effectiveness of AES, we had students perform two experiments using the system. Those experiments focused mainly on the learning effect as revealed by student self-evaluation questionnaire. We additionally considered objective data, testing students for comprehension before and after the experiments. In this report, we show some new functions added to AES and the results of evaluation experiments in terms of learning effects.
