Abstract

Circular and elliptical motion are fundamental topics in physics education, yet learners often struggle to grasp them. We investigate how interactive qualitative representations can be used to describe the characteristic behavior of circular and elliptical motion. We use the vocabulary and algorithms known as qualitative reasoning, which make it possible to represent the distinct features of these systems in a conceptual way. Leveraging the close alignment between qualitative reasoning and human reasoning about dynamic systems, these representations have the potential to enhance understanding in this domain.
