Teaching and learning contents of physics and sports can easily be combined and digitally analysed.

The teaching unit ‘Spot the Physics’ shows how it works: With their smartphones students record various motion sequences during sportive activities like the throwing of a basket ball or the acceleration during a bicycle ride.

Later the students analyse the recorded videos to determine which physical theories can describe the phenomena observed.
