Kinematic graphs play an important role in students' understanding of basic physics' concepts dealing with motion. Often these graphs are difficult for students to interpret and connect with the real world. This project investigated how video analysis software and an educational video game could assist students' understanding of these graphs. While students did increase their understanding of kinematic graphs, further improvement can be made.
