Motion Concepts: Displacement, velocity, & acceleration graphs part of 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. ...
Concept Questions for the Photoelectric Effect with Interactive Simulation part of Examples
These are interactive lecture-demonstration questions probe student understanding of fundamental concepts in the photoelectric effect.
Think-Pair-Share Analysis of the Operation of a Metal Detector part of Examples
The activity presents a Think-Pair-Share analysis of a metal detector including a simulation.
The Transformer: Simulation Lecture Demo part of Examples
The activity presents an interactive lecture demonstration of the operation of a transformer using a simulation.
Will the egg break? part of 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 ...
Modeling emf, Potential Difference, and Internal Resistance part of 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 within the context of internal resistance of batteries.
Rutherford's Model of the Atom part of 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 for the causes of the interaction. This activity uses a resource in the comPADRE partner collection.
The Evolution of Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient/Exploring Relationships between Two Quantitative Variables part of Examples
The evolution of ideas is often ignored in the teaching of statistics. It is important to show students how definitions and formulas evolve. This activity describes a fairly straightforward activity of how measures of association can evolve.
Models of the Hydrogen Atom part of Examples
In this interactive lecture, models of the hydrogen atom are explored using an online Java applet. The exploration leads to qualitative and quantitative analysis of energy transitions.
Projectile and Satellite Orbits part of 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.
