General
How I Use It
I used this tool to further students' knowledge of the force of gravity and velocity in relation to the orbit of objects.
My Take
My students loved this interactive opportunity, but it definitely has to correspond with your already taught lesson. There is not a lot of instruction on how it works, so I felt that it had to be teacher-led at the beginning.
