Motion Concepts: Displacement, velocity, & acceleration graphs part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Students often struggle with motion concepts. These activities focus on the graphical representations of displacement, velocity, and acceleration given a number of situations of an object moving along the x-axis. ...

Learning to Think about Gravity II: Aristotle to Einstein part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

The purpose of this exercise is to learn how to think about gravity, learn about scientific methodology, and transition from the Aristotelian to Newtonian to Einsteinian understanding of gravity. -

Projectile and Satellite Orbits part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Gravitation introductory activity with interesting animation. The activity allows the student to revile the connection between the initial speed and the shape of satellite orbit. -

Science on a Skateboard - Applications of Newton's Third Law part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

A think, pair, share activity with Socratic questioning to help students begin to understand rocket propulsion. -

Work: pre, during and post class questions part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This series of questions before instruction, in-class peer instruction, and post-instruction allow students to iterate and improve their understanding of work incrementally. -

Will the egg break? part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This is a discrepant event that can be used to help students understand applications of the momentum-impulse theorem. Students are first asked to predict and hypothesize what will happen when an egg is thrown into ...

Introduction to Torques: A Question of Balance, Featuring the Sledge Hammer of the Sierra Madre part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Interactive Lecture Demonstrations to illustrate the nature of torques and on the balancing of torques in static equilibrium.

Elastic and Inelastic Collisions: The Case of the Happy and Sad Balls part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Interactive Lecture Demonstration to illustrate that impulses are larger in elastic collisions than in inelastic collisions if other factors are the same.

Understanding the Work Energy Theorem: In the lab or as lecture demonstration part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

This series of questions before instruction, in-class peer instruction as students come to understanding, and visualization of an important mathematical relationship allow students to iterate and improve their understanding of work incrementally.

Experiment Problem in Kinematics: How Much Does it Take to Win the Race? part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

In this activity, students are presented with two objects that have different constant speeds and that will race each other. The students must determine which object will win the race, as well as either how much time elapses between the objects crossing the finish line.

Introduction to Work and Energy: The Hopper Popper Surprise part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Learning to Think about Gravity: Newtons's Theory part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

The purpose of this exercise is to learn how to think about gravity, learn about scientific methodology, and transition from the Aristotelian to the Newtonian understanding of gravity. -

Graph Predictions for Position, Velocity and Acceleration part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples

Graphical Just-in-Time-Teaching questions for use before classes in which students explore position, velocity and acceleration graphs.

Angular Momentum Experiment part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of concepts of conserved motion to develop introductory understanding, students are directed to a series of activities to gain a better understanding of momentum, conservation of momenta, angular momentum, and conservation of angular momenta.
