Encouraging students to interact with angular quantities

An interactive multimedia module in rotational kinematics has been completed at Edith Cowan University for first year physics students. In this second version, highly interactive testing pages have been added to help students improve their conceptual understanding of angular position, angular velocity and angular acceleration. Other pages have been revised and an on-screen calculator added to predict type pages. Students find the interactive testing pages useful and believe the module improves their understanding of rotational motion.
