My project was created with the facilities available at Kalamazoo College. I explored the new 660AV Macintosh and programmed its voice recognition. I created two physics labs for Kalamazoo College's non calculus based physics students, using Interactive Physics. I also created an educational physics game using HyperCard Version 2.1. The project, Physics Phantasy, was designed to cater to Kalamazoo College's non calculus based physics students to aid in studying for exams, but can be used for any introductory physics course. Phantasy Physics is a set of physics problems, incorporated into a fantasy game. This was fashioned after Dungeons and Dragons a role playing game. Obstacles are crossed using one's knowledge of physics.
