Free-Body Diagrams for Inclined Planes

The Free-Body Diagrams for Inclined Planes Concept Builder challenges a learner to utilize an understanding of force types in order to construct a free-body diagram for an object moving along an inclined plane. Learners select force arrows from an arrow bank and label the arrows with a force type. There are 32 questions organized into 8 Question Groups and spread across three different levels of difficulty. The situations vary in terms of the direction of movement, the number of forces, and the angle of the incline. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 8 situations. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
