CamMotion Project and Software Launched

The CamMotion project and software developed a combination of video and computer technologies that brought math and students together in ways previously impossible. Students explored and examined patterns of motion by making measurements of video they created about jump rope, juggling, gymnastics, etc. The software enabled students to measure position, distance, angle, and area. A graphical overlay window provided a growing record of the data being collected against a background of a single video frame. Individual datasets were combined in a worksheet where a set of transformations (e.g. taking the differences between consecutive measurements) was applied.
