American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) Winter Meeting

Computers and data collection devices are an expensive part of introductory labs. What if students could use their own smart phones or tablets? We have run a set of mechanics-based physics labs using iPads for data collection and analysis. Using motion capture software the iPads function as a versatile replacement for frustrating sonic detectors. The data can be analyzed with a variety of simple apps that can be easily inserted into a document for electronic submission. ilabs are paperless eLabs!
