Rollar Coaster Physics

Powered by Apple, Coaster Physics, is an educational app by Zonic that brings Physics to life in the classroom. Students design and ride their own virtual roller coaster while seeing how speed,acceleration, energy and g force effects the way the riders ride the roller coaster. With the app students can also track and record their ride so they can see what levels the different forces are at during any time of the ride.

This allows teachers to have the ability to connect physics to the outside world and make it more relatable to the students. It also allows students to visually see how these elements effect each other rather than just being told through formulas.
