This physics unit allows students to fully investigate the concept of linear motion. It includes derivations of the equations and various graphs relating displacement, velocity, and acceleration. The unit includes tips...
This site from the Exploratorium presents a demonstration showing that the acceleration of gravity is the same for different objects. The site contains a materials list, assembly instructions for creating the vacuum,...
Created by Tom Henderson of Physics Classroom.com, this resource features well-organized text explanations alongside algebraic equations and animations to help users form a better understanding of gravitational...
A Summary of Students' Mental Models and Their Applications in Contexts Pertaining to Newton's II Law
In this study, presented at the 2002 Physics Education Research Conference, authors describe their investigation of students' use of Newton's II law in mechanics and electricity and magnetism contexts. They interviewed...
This lesson builds upon the previous one (Newton's Second Law) by introducing students to kinetic and potential energy. Topics include a brief description of these two forms of energy, a discussion of gravity as a form...
