Abstract Title: Teaching Force and Motion in Augmented Reality
Abstract: Technology has always been a medium to help teachers provide the best educational experiences for our nation's youth.  Augmented and Virtual Reality is becoming more common in the classroom which brings unprecedented opportunities. Our team created an Augmented Reality (AR) application to use with the Merge Cube that focuses on Forces and Motion.  This application is used with multiple in-service and pre-service teachers for two reasons.  The first is to enhance their understanding of mechanics.  The second is that they allow us to asses both the usability and willingness to use not only that application, but ARVR in general.  We found that after modifications they were extremely receptive to the application, learned from it and would implement it in the future.
