DMVs go to South Africa! DMV Leader Peter Bohacek wins Presidential Teaching Award Gen2 DMV Player in Limited Release Using Direct Measurement Video for Rotation in AP Physics 1 New Activity: Physics Face-off Direct Measurement Videos are featured in two new physics MOOCs
Direct Measurement Project co-leader Peter Bohacek traveled to South Africa to share videos and teaching methods with 130 educators at two physics teaching conferences in Johannesburg and Cape Town.
The Direct Measurement Video project is honored to announce that Peter Bohacek was awarded the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. This is the highest recognition that a K-12 mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States.
Users may have noticed that we've been slowly introducing a new version of DMV Player for some videos. New features include floating tools that can be selected and positioned by the user, and a new stopwatch. The stopwatch displays time in seconds and frames so students don't have to convert frames to seconds, and allows students to set the stopwatch to zero more...
