View Resource General Atomics Fusion Group Educational Home Page

This site from the General Atomics Energy Group features a collection of educational resources on fusion. Both naturally occuring fusion and fusion as an energy source are included. Resources for teachers to use in the classroom are included.

View Resource My Physics Labs - Physics Simulations with Java

This web site, authored by Erik Neumann, contains a collection of interactive java simulations for physics. Each simulation includes a detailed explanation of the physics and math behind the system, as well as the numerical methods used to simulate the motion. Most are demonstrations of oscillators, but there are also games related to basic principles of force. Included are the double pendulum,...

View Resource Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider

The Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider is a particle accelerator capable of creating the highest energy heavy ion collisions in the world. It is designed to explore a new state of matter called quark-gluon plasma. The facility is located at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York.

View Resource Observing Students' Use of Computer-based Tools During Collision Experiments

This paper, presented at the 2001 Physics Education Research Conference, the authors investigate the effects of instructional approaches in microcomputer-based laboratories and video-based labs in an undergraduate physics laboratory. Results indicate that students are able to make good use of this information in the lab, and that they respond to this added information by spending more time in lab...

View Resource Trapped! Analysis of a Real Collision

This site contains an investigation of forces exerted by a BB striking an elastic strip. The site provides an introduction, preparations, analysis, and interpretations of this experiment, which involves calculating force. The author also presents an interesting paradox for visitors to resolve. A student gallery shows various examples of strobe photos, including balloons popped with paintballs and...
