Direct Measurement Video project launches expanded video collection

published Jul 25, 2014 2:55pm
Direct Measurement Videos are short, high-quality videos of real events that students can use to explore and apply physics concepts. What sets these videos apart from others is that students can measure distances, time, angles, and other variables right off the videos, allowing for a wide variety of quantitative and theoretical exploration. More than 70 videos are included in the collection, illustrating mechanics via ice skaters, roller coasters, a spinning fish tank and much more.

The videos can be used for labs, homework, assessments, or open-ended problems. Several of the videos are paired with classroom-ready activities that integrate videos into the introductory mechanics curriculum.
