Sun Spot Analysis part of Examples

Introductory students use Excel to graph monthly mean Greenwich sunspot numbers from 1749 to 2004 and perform a spectral analysis of the data using the free software program "Spectra".

Quantitative Skills: Differential Equations and Integrals, Probability and Statistics:Describing Data Distribution, Graphs, Fourier Series, Spectral Analysis

Measuring the coefficient of friction of a skater on ice part of Examples

Students use video analysis of ice skaters gliding across the ice to determine the coefficient of friction between the skates and the ice. Materials include instructions and six videos that can be used for analysis.

Reflection and Absorption of Light part of Examples

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

Conservation of energy of while rolling down a hill part of Examples

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

Analysis of simple harmonic oscillator in a single video clip part of 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 a rollercoaster using high speed video part of 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.

Measuring velocity of objects using video clips part of Examples

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