A Build your own Simulator Kit for Students - Everything Included!

 A 3-in-1 Build-upon Kit:   1 Car Simulator    1 Car Simulator with Variable Starting Point   and   2 Car Simulator

InterActivity: 1 Car Simulator

 Scenario with 1 car: Everyday Rila drives her red car the 100 mile distance across the flat plains of Flatlandia between the cities AbsolutelyNowhere and BeyondBoring. She drives the whole route at a constant speed using cruise control. A stopwatch displays the number of hours past and a GPS displays the number of miles the car is from AbsolutelyNowhere. Students build a simulator and answers questions like: Today Rila leaves AbsolutelyNowhere at 9AM. She resets the stopwatch to 0 and she sets her cruise control at 16 mph. What 2 numbers are displayed at 9:45AM? Starting when she resets the stopwatch to 0, every 15 minutes, the car prints out these numbers on the display. What does the printout look like at 9:45AM? What time is it when Rila arrives in BeyondBoring?

Click on the play button (bottom left) to start the car going or click & drag the slider point tm.
