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.

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. ...

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. These activities also are designed to lead to other investigations about simple DC circuits.

Think-Pair-Share Analysis of the Operation of a Metal Detector part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
The activity presents a Think-Pair-Share analysis of a metal detector including a simulation.

Work: pre, during and post class questions part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
This series of questions before instruction, in-class peer instruction, and post-instruction allow students to iterate and improve their understanding of work incrementally.

The Transformer: Simulation Lecture Demo part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
The activity presents an interactive lecture demonstration of the operation of a transformer using a simulation.

The Evolution of Pearsonâs Correlation Coefficient/Exploring Relationships between Two Quantitative Variables part of Interactive Lectures: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.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate the Sampling Distribution of an F-statistic part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
This visualization activity combines student data collection with the use of an applet to enhance the understanding of the distributions of mean square treatment (MST), mean square error (MSE) as well as their ratio, an F-distribution. Students will see theoretical distributions of the mean square treatment, mean square error and their ratio and how they compare to the histograms generated by the simulated data.

Helping Students Discover Total Internal Reflection part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
Students learn the basic relationship of Snell's Law, practice applying it to a situation, then are given another situation where it "doesn't work."??? This situation turns out to be one in which total internal reflection occurs. Students are then shown what happens with classroom apparatus.

Learning to Think about Gravity: Newtons's Theory 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 the Newtonian understanding of gravity.
