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.

Conservation of energy of while rolling down a hill part of Teaching with Data:Examples

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

Conservation of energy of a rollercoaster using high speed video part of Teaching with Data: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 Teaching with Data:Examples

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

Measuring the coefficient of friction of a skater on ice part of Teaching with Data: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 Teaching with Data:Examples

One video clip, with embedded graphs, can be used to help students understand the mathematical relationships that describe simple harmonic motion.
