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.
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.
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.
Using Satellite Data and Google Earth to Explore the Shape of Ocean Basins and Bathymetry of the Sea Floor part of Examples
This activity is for an introductory oceanography course. It is designed to allow students to use various tools (satellite images, Google Earth) to explore the shape of the sea floor and ocean basins in order to gain a better understanding of both the processes that form ocean basins, as well as how the shape of ocean basins influences physical and biological processes.
Seismicity and Relative Risk part of Examples
This activity introduces students to using real-time data about earthquakes to make decisions.
Environmental impacts of oil production in Alaska part of Examples
An activity designed to enable the students to access the impact of oil-development on environment in Alaska. Students will draw conclusion based on various data and reading various views.
Electrical Analysis of Wind Power part of Examples
For this experiment, students use a DC motor as a generator and various shaped turbine designs to test which design produces the most electrical power. Using a fan to generate the "wind", students attach ...
