Lab 1a: Quantifying motion from Images and Videos

How do you quantify motion?  Excel Analysis of the 1-D Motion of an Amoeba


In this one-week lab, students explore the concepts of position, displacement, velocity and acceleration while learning basic Excel skills for data presentation and analysis.  The students are given a stop-motion sequence of outlines of an amoeba undergoing roughly linear motion.  The students must determine what should be measured, how to measure it, and how to manipulate the resulting data to make statements about the amoeba’s motion.
