The goal of this project is to design a physics tutoring system using computer simulations as the primary means of learning correction. Being able to compare their solution with their own expectation for how an object typically moves, should allow the learner to identify many of their mistakes without the tutoring system identifying them. However, tutor feedback will be necessary to help guide the learner after identifying a mistake.
