Lab4U’sLab4Physics lets students turn their smartphone into a sensor for physics experiments. This iOSapp uses the accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers built into smartphones to measure, graph, and analyze physical properties and their changes. Students and teachers can then export the data. Lab4U’s Teacher Portal includes documents created by scientists and science educators who are using Lab4Physics to explore the world around them. The information is intended to help teachers get started experimenting with their students using the app. Cost: Free
