Activity 1: A Tool for Inquiry
Measurement in Motion
What can I expect to get out of doing this activity?
In this part of the activity you are going to read a bit about the Measurement in Motion in general. You will also do some simple experiments with the Measurement in Motion tool. You should already have downloaded the software. Your Site Coordinator can help you with this process.
30 minutes for the reading.
30 minutes for initial work with Measurement in Motion.
|There are two ways to learn the tools in
Measurement in Motion. You can follow the directions below
referring to the MIM CD and manual, or view the moving images behind the
links in the
How do I? section, further down this page.
Use the CD demo:
View the animations below by clicking on the links to find answers to these questions. Open Measurement in Motion on your computer. Try these operations yourself. MIM uses a "drag and drop" metaphor to link data between representations. Connecting the diamonds in the upper left hand corner of a frame moves data from one window to another.

How do I?
|Open a MIM visual data set||View a TABLE made from data taken from the image.|
|Explore links between the table and the video images.||Make a graph from a visual data set.|
|Define a new measurement and make a new set of measurements.||Display a data table for new measurement.|
|Display a graph from new measurement.||View and overlay two graphs, add titles, and make a graph transparent.|
