Regularities in Real World Complex Trajectories Using Video Modeling
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.02
  Time: 5:15PM - 6:00PM
  Author: Arturo Velasquez, Grupo de Física / Gimnasio La Montaña
  Co-Author(s): Fernando Huertas
  Abstract: Regular high school kinematics courses use rectilinear, projectile, and circular paths to introduce the idea of composite path. However, it is possible to introduce the same notion using real-world trajectories in the classroom: motion of a tennis raquet grip during free fall and motion of selected points on a spinning ballerina are analyzed with video modeling and detailed here.
