Algodoo is a physics-based 2D sandbox which has features and functions designed specifically for use on the SMART Board. The video below shows how Algodoo’s “plot” tool can be used for a lesson on interpreting graphs and real-world functions. In this example, we create a plot showing the height of a Ferris Wheel’s car over time.

Algodoo is available for download from http://www.algodoo.com/wiki/Download. It’s free for 15 hours of use, and the cost of a full license is about $21 dollars (converted from €15).
