Mass Balance Model part of Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model.

Slinky and Waves part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Use a Slinky to show:P and S waves, Wave reflection, and Standing waves in interactive lecture demonstration.

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to detector.

Properties of Electrostatic Charge: Interactive Lecture Demonstration part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

This activity is an interactive lecture demonstration format which can be used to teach the first lesson of electrostatics. Students will investigate conservation of charge, charge by contact, polarization of charge and charge by induction.

The Magic of Optics: Now you see it, now you don't part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

A magical demonstration where a Pyrex tube vanishes in a beaker of mineral oil. Useful demonstration to introduce to concept of refraction (and/or partial reflection).

Introduction to Torques: A Question of Balance, Featuring the Sledge Hammer of the Sierra Madre part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Interactive Lecture Demonstrations to illustrate the nature of torques and on the balancing of torques in static equilibrium.

Elastic and Inelastic Collisions: The Case of the Happy and Sad Balls part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Interactive Lecture Demonstration to illustrate that impulses are larger in elastic collisions than in inelastic collisions if other factors are the same.

Understanding the Work Energy Theorem: In the lab or as lecture demonstration part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

This series of questions before instruction, in-class peer instruction as students come to understanding, and visualization of an important mathematical relationship allow students to iterate and improve their understanding of work incrementally.

Experiment Problem in Kinematics: How Much Does it Take to Win the Race? part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

In this activity, students are presented with two objects that have different constant speeds and that will race each other. The students must determine which object will win the race, as well as either how much time elapses between the objects crossing the finish line.

The Standard Model: Using CERN output graphics to identify elementary particles part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of the Standard Model to develop introductory understanding, students link to OPAL and DELPHI data archives from CERN to identify and study the tracks from elementary particles.

Angular Momentum Experiment part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of concepts of conserved motion to develop introductory understanding, students are directed to a series of activities to gain a better understanding of momentum, conservation of momenta, angular momentum, and conservation of angular momenta.

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.

Introduction to Work and Energy: The Hopper Popper Surprise part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

Understanding the Motion of a Harmonic Oscillator part of Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

This inteactive lecture and series of demonstrations develops the concepts and vocabulary of oscillatory motion as it relates to the motion of a mass on a spring.

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. -

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. -

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. ...

Concept Questions for the Photoelectric Effect with Interactive Simulation part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

These are interactive lecture-demonstration questions probe student understanding of fundamental concepts in the photoelectric effect. -
