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.
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.
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.
Bioinformatics part of Examples
This exercise contains two interrelated modules that introduce students to modern biological techniques in the area of Bioinformatics, which is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. The need for Bioinformatics has arisen from the recent explosion of publicly available genomic information, such as that resulting from the Human Genome Project.
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.
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.
Microsoft Excel Basic Tutorial part of Examples
