Standard 4: The Physical Setting
PS 5.1b: The motion of an object can be described by its position, direction of motion, and speed.

With only one device, you can project the iPad so that the entire class can watch and be involved in the recording and investigation/annotation of a single video.
With many devices, students may be broken up into teams to work collaboratively on their iPad to record, annotate and investigate their videos. Teams of three or four students work well. Suggestions for student roles in each time can be found in the introduction.
