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.

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.

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.

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.

ConcepTest: Axis Tilt part of ConcepTests:Examples

Mars axis is tilted at approximately the same angle as Earth's axis. This should result in a. days of similar length. b. similar sequences of seasons. c. similar temperatures on the planet's surface. d. ...

ConcepTest: Tidal Ranges 1 part of ConcepTests:Examples

If the moon were farther away from the Earth: a. Tidal ranges would be larger b. Tidal ranges would be smaller c. There would no change in tidal ranges

ConcepTest: Tidal Ranges 2 part of ConcepTests:Examples

If the moon were larger: a. Tidal ranges would be larger b. Tidal ranges would be smaller c. There would no change in tidal ranges.

ConcepTest: Eccentricity and Seasons part of ConcepTests:Examples

Mars has a more eccentric orbit of the Sun than Earth. Mars is 20% closer to the Sun during winter in its Northern hemisphere than it is during its summer. What would be the implications for the seasons on Earth if ...

ConcepTest: Sun Spot Activity part of ConcepTests:Examples

Sun spots, flares and other emissions from the Sun's surface can have a negative impact on electrical systems on Earth. What would be the implications for this type of solar activity if the Sun did not ...

ConcepTest: Jovian Planet Characteristics part of ConcepTests:Examples

The characteristics of four planets are listed below. Which planet is most likely to be classified as Jovian? a. Mainly rocky, volcanism, low gravity. b. Mainly rocky, no volcanism, high gravity. c. Mainly gaseous, ...

ConcepTest: Eccentricity and Temperature Distribution part of ConcepTests:Examples

Mars has a more eccentric orbit of the Sun than Earth. Mars is 20% closer to the Sun during its winter than it is during its summer. How would temperature distributions on Earth be affected if we had a similarly ...

ConcepTest: Rotation part of ConcepTests:Examples

It takes 24 hours—one day—for one complete rotation of Earth. How long would it take for the Sun to strike every location on the equator if Earth did not rotate on its axis? a. never b. one season c. 24 hours ...

ConcepTest: The Moons Orbit part of ConcepTests:Examples

Does the Moon have a geocentric or heliocentric type orbit? a. geocentric. b. heliocentric. c. neither.

ConcepTest: Relative Planet Ages part of ConcepTests:Examples

How old are other planets in the Universe in comparison to the planets in our Solar System? a. Other planets are older than the planets in our Solar System. b. Other planets are younger than the planets in our ...

Determining Measured Values and Uncertainty part of Measurement and Uncertainty:Examples

Student practice taking measurements with various instruments and learn to determine the uncertainty of their measured value.

Performing Calculations using Measured Values that Include Uncertainty part of Measurement and Uncertainty:Examples

Students measure the density of pennies to determine their composition. Students practice determining measured values that include uncertainty and practice calculations using numbers that include uncertainty.

Order It Up! part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

A think-pair-share activity which involves putting solar system bodies in order based on various statistics: escape velocity, distance from the sun, mass, etc. -

Resources for using PhET simulations in class – PhET Activities Database part of PhET Interactive Science Simulations:Examples

The PhET Activities Database is a collection of resources for using PhET sims. It includes hundreds of lesson plans, homework assignments, labs, clicker questions, and more. Some activities have been created by the PhET team and some have been created by teachers.

Using PhET simulations to replace real equipment in lab – Circuit Construction Kit part of PhET Interactive Science Simulations:Examples

Labs and tutorials that use equipment such as circuits can be modified to use PhET simulations instead. Research shows that substituting the PhET Circuit Construction Kit simulation for real equipment in a variety ...

Writing your own activities - PhET Activity Guidelines part of PhET Interactive Science Simulations:Examples

You can create your own lectures, homework, and labs around any PhET simulation by using the PhET Activity Guidelines . These guidelines will help you create "guided inquiry activities which encourage students to construct their own understanding," which are the most effective way to use PhET simulations.
