View Resource A Cognitive Framework for Analyzing and Describing Introductory Students' Use and Understanding of Mathematics in Physics

This webpage offers a doctoral dissertation in which the author proposes a theoretical framework to analyze and describe students' mathematical thinking in physics. The author addresses two particular questions. What are the cognitive tools involved in formal mathematical thinking in physics? And, why do students make the kinds of mistakes they do when using mathematics in physics? Two important...

View Resource Corner Reflector

This site provides an activity on reflection using just three mirrors and duct tape. A kaleidoscope effect is produced to show multiple images of an object, and a corner mirror is created to demonstrate a reflector that always sends light back in the direction from which it came. The site also contains an explanation of the physics involved, provides several extension activities, and includes a...

View Resource Hyperphysics-Basic Vector Operations

This page is interactive resource allowing the teacher to choose among topics related to vector operations. The subjects are organized in flow charts that make it easy to move from one topic to a related item. Vector resolution, addition, and product are covered in-depth, with conceptual support in practical applications such as torque, work, and magnetic force. This item is part of a larger...

View Resource Institute of Physics: Education

The Institute of Physics (IOP), which boasts a worldwide membership of over 50,000, has put together an excellent Education section on its website. Here readers will find curriculum development initiatives, professional development courses, and other helpful resources. Readers may like to start by choosing one of the categories on the landing page, which are broadly divided by career level or...

View Resource Rotating Phasors- Negative Frequencies

This interactive phasor page allows you to control the values of a rotating phasor and see a visualization of each change that is done. You can control: one, pos/neg, two, beats, delta, sawtooth, square, triangle, time, zoom, plus you can put into five different values: Frequency (rel, HZ, mHZ), Amplitude (raw, rel), and Phases (Deg, Rad, unitrad).
