Tools Integrated in Coach 7

Coach 7 integrates tools which facilitate an Inquiry-based approach to Education and gives possibility to show the connection between science and real-life. This helps students to understand the relevance of science to their lives and the use of science laws.
In our approach students work in much the same way as professionals do. They collect high-quality, real-time data, construct and use models, use simulations and visualisations, compare results from experiments and models, they construct their own knowledge. They are encouraged to collaborate, they have to discuss and analyse their findings, construct and test models, form coherent arguments, present their investigations. 

Data Logging

An interface equipped with a selection of sensors is a universal measurement instrument and can be used in many experiments.
The Coach Measurement Activities enable you to collect data via an interface and sensors. The rate of data collection is available over a wide range of time-periods and frequencies. Different measurement methods allow performing many different experiments.
Real-time presenting data while being collected helps students to connect the features of the phenomenon and the features of the graph.

Control

The combination of measuring
and control allows to automate measurements and
to create control programs.
The Coach Control Activities enable you to use and create control programs for interfaces equipped with control outputs, such as CoachLab II+, or interfaces with build-in actuators, such as WiLab.
The environment offers several modes of programming.
These types of Activities are not included in the Coach 7 Apps on tablets and smartphones.

Spectrometer

Allows to collect data
from the CMA Spectrometer
and record Emission
and Absorption spectra.
Starting from Coach 7.4 a Spectrometer Activity has been added.
Such a type of activity is used to collect data from CMA Spectrometer and allow to record Emission and Absorption spectra over a range of 360 - 940 nm.
These types of Activities are not included in the Coach 7 Apps on tablets and smartphones.

Data Video

Brings real world into your classroom and allows to analyse motion of real objects, attractive events and “difficult” experiments.
The Coach Data-Video Activities enable you to collect data from videos. The resulting graphs can be synchronised with the video. This helps students to bridge the gap between the motion and its abstract graphical representation.
Coach also offers many extra features like capturing a video or correcting a perspective distortion. Students can capture their own videos with the help of camera or smartphones.

Data Image

Allows to collect data from images and analyse shapes of real objects.
Also analysis of stroboscopic photos
is possible.
The Coach Data-Image Activities enable you to collect data from still images and photos and analyse for example shapes of real objects.
During measurements on an image the position data, or position and time data for a stroboscopic image, are collected. Coach also offers extra features like correcting a perspective distortion.

Modeling

Helps to understand the world of computational models; such models are used today in every area of research and industry.
The Coach Modeling Activities enable you to use ready-to-go models or to create models of dynamic changing systems. Modeling allows solving realistic problems that are difficult to solve analytically at the school level. It encourages students to think, to discuss their ideas and to clarify their understandings. To verify the model its data can be compared with experimental data.

Animations

Animations offer
another way of presenting data
to help students to better understand
the meaning of data.
The Coach Animations consist of animated graphics objects, like circles or images, which can be linked to model variables or sensor values. Interactive control objects, like buttons or sliders, allow altering parameters during the execution of the animation to see the effect of those changes.
These types of Activities are not included in the Coach 7 Apps on tablets and smartphones.

Spreadsheet

In Spreadsheet Activities
there is no measurement possibility,
data can be entered manually
or imported.
Starting from Coach 7.6 Spreadsheet Activity has been added. Such activities do not have the Start button. They can be used to manually create a data set or to import data from a csv file or from another Coach Activity or Result file.

Data Analysis & Processing

The data can be analysed
and processed with the same
analysis and processing tools
across the Coach program.
It does not matter how the data has been collected, they can be processed with the same tools available through the program.
These are tools such as: zooming, finding a slope or an area under a graph, selecting and removing data, smoothing a graph, calculating new variables with mathematical functions, finding the best function fit, calculating a frequency spectrum, finding statistical data information, creating a histogram.

If you do not need all the power of Coach 7 or you work with primary level students Coach 7 Lite is available at no charge for use with the CMA interfaces. Register to get the password then download and install for free. 

Authoring Tools
for teachers and curriculum developers

To help teachers to get started in using technology, CMA offers ready-to-go Teaching and Learning Activities. You can use these Activities directly in your lessons or adapt them to your own needs.
But Coach offers more. It enables you to build activities filled with your own learning content. When logged in as an Author you can modify an existing Activity or you can create a new Activity with the tool you need, for the desired student level, with your texts, images, videos, student questions, and with a screen layout that displays the way you want it.

The CMA Teaching Resources are free for our Coach 7 Users. Simple register with your Coach 7 License Code. Then login and freely browse and download the Activities.
