Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to detector.

Slinky and Waves part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Use a Slinky to show:P and S waves, Wave reflection, and Standing waves in interactive lecture demonstration.

Mass Balance Model part of Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model.

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

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

The Standard Model: Using CERN output graphics to identify elementary particles part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of the Standard Model to develop introductory understanding, students link to OPAL and DELPHI data archives from CERN to identify and study the tracks from elementary particles.

Angular Momentum Experiment part of 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.

Virtual Photoelectric Lab part of Teaching with Data Simulations:Examples

This is a virtual lab activity on the photoelectric effect based on a Java applet simulation of the experiment.

Rutherford's Model of the Atom part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Students are asked think-pair-share questions to predict the interaction of alpha particles fired toward the nucleus of an atom. An online applet is used to illustrate the interaction and test students' ideas ...

Concept Questions for the Photoelectric Effect with Interactive Simulation part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

These are interactive lecture-demonstration questions probe student understanding of fundamental concepts in the photoelectric effect. -

Modeling emf, Potential Difference, and Internal Resistance part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Through class discussion and think-pair-share questions, this activity helps students come to understand the difference between emf and potential difference in electrical circuits. These concepts are broached ...

Learning to Think about Gravity II: Aristotle to Einstein part of 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. -

Motion Concepts: Displacement, velocity, & acceleration graphs part of 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. ...

Projectile and Satellite Orbits part of 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 Interactive Lectures:Examples

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

Will the egg break? part of 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 ...

Measuring voltage and current in a DC circuit part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

These exercises target student misconceptions about how to properly measure voltage and current in simple DC circuits by letting them investigate different meter arrangements without fear of damaging equipment. ...

Interactive Lecture Questions for Single Slit Diffraction part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

This is a set of interactive lecture demonstration questions designed to probe student understanding of single-slit diffraction. -

Experiment Problem in Kinematics: How Much Does it Take to Win the Race? part of 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.

Understanding the Work Energy Theorem: In the lab or as lecture demonstration part of 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.

Elastic and Inelastic Collisions: The Case of the Happy and Sad Balls part of 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.
