View Resource Gas Molecules Simulation

Created by Paul Falstad, this applet simulates kinetic theory of gases. The volume, temperature of a plate at the bottom, and force of gravity are adjustable. A histogram displays relative velocities of different temperatures of molecules. A description and source code are also included. Links to additional applets are also included.

View Resource Contemporary College Physics Simulation Library

This website includes a collection of introductory level physics simulations on topics including motion, sound, electricity, magnetism, optics, modern physics, relativity, Kepler's laws, spectroscopy and more. Each simulation includes instructions for use as well as an explanation of the physical concepts involved.

View Resource Fractal Geometry

This is a web site, created by Michael Frame, Benoit Mandelbrot, and Nial Neger of Yale University, to support a first course in fractal geometry for students without a strong mathematical background. It covers a wide range of topics in fractals, modern dynamics, and chaos. Each of the topics contains examples of fractals in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. The site also contains lesson...

View Resource Animating Motion

In a universe full of motion, change is inevitable. Luckily, we find that some motions?like a planet orbiting the sun?are relatively constant and repetitive, and obey natural laws that we can come to understand through measurement and mathematical principles. Kinematics is a branch in the study of physics which deals with the quantitative descriptions of motion. Understanding the motions whi...

View Resource Common Sense Concepts About Motion

In this article we will not attack the difficult problem of designing instruction to accommodate CS preconceptions. But let us note that CS concepts experience providing meaning to our natural language. Discourse on physics would be impossible without it. Indeed, physics and science in general can be instruction frequently appeals tacitly to common sense knowledge, but students have trouble when...
