This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, shares the results of a short diagnostic quiz has been administered over the past two years in the calculus-based introductory physics course at...
Zona Land: Energy
This webpage is a tutorial on work and energy designed and maintained by a high school physics teacher. Topics include kinetic and potential energy, spring potential energy, GPE, heat and temperature, and nuclear...
PhET: The Ramp
In this simulation, students push common items of varying masses up an incline to explore the relationship of applied force, work, and energy. They control the angle of the ramp, friction, and amount of applied force. ...
Teaching About Energy: Designing a Roller Coaster
This student activity is designed to explore the concept of work. Using inclined planes with different slopes, students are lead to discover the invariance of force times distance for objects starting at the same...
This Exploratorium activity uses dipping birds to provide an introduction to heat engines which convert heat energy to mechanical work. The site contains an explanation of the physics involved and also an extension...
