View Resource Energy

This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provides an elementary introduction and overview of potential and kinetic energy, and a discussion of transformations of other forms of energy. A lesson plan and related page on Work are also linked to this page. This is part of an extensive web site, "From Stargazers to Starships", that uses the topics of space exploration and space science...

View Resource Vectors

This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, introduces vectors as an extension of numbers having both magnitude and direction. The initial motivation is to describe velocity but the material includes a general discussion of vector algebra and an application to forces for the inclined plane. The page contains links to a related lesson plan and further opportunities to explore vectors....

View Resource Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) -- Art of Physics

The Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) Art of Physics is a photography competition aimed to stimulate interest in physics. Information provided by the photographer presents the physics of each image. Unfortunately this information is not available for the 2004-2005 competition (only thumbnails are shown), but archives contain the full-size image and background information from previous...

View Resource Deriving Solar System Dimensions Using the 2004 Transit of Venus

Authored and curated by David P. Stern, this series of three web pages gives information about the usage of the transit of Venus to measure distances in the solar system. The site also contains a large collection of links related to the Venus transit, a math refresher, and a photo archive of the transit. It is part of the extensive web site "From Stargazers to Starships", which uses space...

View Resource The Way Things Fall

This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provides an introduction to the motion of objects due to gravity. Topics covered include free fall and acceleration due to gravity, with or without an initial velocity, and the effects of air resistance. Simple equations are integrated along with a short experiments related to Galileo's classic ramp experiment. A lesson plan for teachers is...
