An exploration of spring systems: Asking and answering quantitative questions part of Teaching Resources:Quantitative Writing:Examples

Laboratory activity on springs and simple harmonic motion that encourages creative development of experiments and clear presentation of quantitative results in the form of a memo.

Airplane on a String part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Using Direct Measurement Videos to Teach Physics:Examples

Students analyze the motion of a toy airplane on a string using information from the video (a visible force scale, a frame-counter & an overlaid protractor). These measurments allow them to determine the mass and speed of the aircraft as well as the length of the string that constrains it.

Reflection and Absorption of Light part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students use a microcomputer connected to a light sensor and temperature probe to explore the reflection and absorption of light. -

Combined Series and Parallel Circuits: Interactive Lecture Demonstrations part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Three in-class lecture demonstration questions to test and build understanding of DC circuits are presented. These questions cover simple series and parallel circuits, and a more complicated circuit that is ...

Analysis of simple harmonic oscillator in a single video clip part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

One video clip, with embedded graphs, can be used to help students understand the mathematical relationships that describe simple harmonic motion.

Conservation of energy of while rolling down a hill part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students analyze video clips of kids rolling down a hill on skates, scooters, and bikes to determine whether mechanical energy is conserved.

Measuring velocity of objects using video clips part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students learn to determine the velocity of moving objects by doing simple analysis of video clips.

Conservation of energy of a rollercoaster using high speed video part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

A high speed video clip of a roller coaster is used as an example of conservation of mechanical energy. Student use the video to determine whether mechanical energy is conserved while the roller coaster rolls up, and then back down a hil.
