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...

Remedial material includes simple math concepts. Some of these include: dimensional analysis, trigonometry, graphing on log paper, logarithms, algebra, vectors, unit conversions and significant digits. Along...

View Resource The Physics Hypertextbook- Parametric Equations

This page offers a clear explanation of the equations that can be used to describe the one-dimensional, constant acceleration motion of an object in terms of its three kinematic variables: velocity, displacement, and time. A set of problems accompanies the text, giving students practice in conceptual, algebraic, calculus-based, and statistical questions. This is part of an online textbook 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;"...

View Resource About Temperature

Beverly Lynds at the Unidata Program Center has made available the About Temperature Web Site. Lynds provided a thorough discussion of temperature along with information about and diagrams of thermometers, heat and thermodymanics, kinetic theory, and radiation temperature. Additionally, she provides links to acknowledgment and external resources for further study.
