View Resource Newton's Third Law

This educational wallsheet illustrating Newton's Third Law of Motion is the third of a set of four. Each image on the front of the poster illustrates Newton's Third Law, and is described on the back. The wallsheet also provides teachers with background information, pre-activity reading for the students that relates the law to the action of the fuel being expelled from the rocket and its reaction...

View Resource Newton's Theory of Universal Gravitation

This website, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provides teachers with lesson plans of astronomy, Newtonian mechanics and spaceflight such as Newton's theory of universal gravitation and Kepler's third law. Lesson plans include sections such as goals, questions and examples. This is a great collection of resources that will enhance many different aspects in a standard physics curriculum.

View Resource Newton Car

This laboratory exercise demonstrates Newton's Second Law of Motion by showing the reaction of a rolling car to increased mass and initial velocity. Wooden blocks, dowel rods, rubber bands, string and other common items are used to make the car.

View Resource An Introduction to Newtonian Mechanics

Created by Edward Kluk of Dickinson State University, this web site provides course materials for an introductory mechanics class. Topics covered include: kinematics, forces, energy, and momentum. Each page features a Java applet illustrating a concept with text and activities accompanying it. The author has created this site because, as he states: "Nowadays it becomes more likely to find in...

View Resource Socratic Dialog-Inducing Labs

Designed by Richard Hake of Indiana University, Bloomington, the resource contain SDI Labs that are "guided construction" labs featuring hands-and-heads-on experiments in introductory mechanics. Their effectiveness in promoting student crossover to the the Newtonian World has been demonstrated by rigorous pre-post testing. Seven labs that are titled "Vectors, Postion and Frames of Reference;"...
