Nature of the chi-square distribution part of Cooperative Learning:Examples
Explaining the chi-square and F distributions in terms of the behavior of variables constructed by generating random samples of normal variates and summing the sqaures of the values.

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.

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.

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 ...

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 within the context of internal resistance of batteries.

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.
