View Resource Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics

This site, created by Tom Roger of Intuitor.com, is dedicated to describing the poor physics that can be found in many movies. It includes general discussions of common movie mistakes, with simple but thorough discussions of the physics, and reviews of movies. There are also resources for instructors wishing to use movie physics in their classes. The movies are rated from good physics to...

View Resource Mass Measurement in Weightlessness and the Inertial Balance

Created by David P. Stern this is the first of three linked web pages. The one listed introduces the concept of mass and the question of how it may be measured without recourse to gravity, e.g. in the weightless environment of a space station. The second tells how such measurements were actually conducted in 1973 aboard "Skylab," and the third describes a simple experiment of comparing masses...

View Resource Amazing Space Teaching Tools

This collection of teaching tools, authored by the Space Telescope Science Institute (U.S.) includes lithographs, fast facts, graphic organizers, question and answer sessions, and online explorations on an array of different general subjects, such as gravity, galaxies, solar system and others. The page features two distinct sections, one for everyone and another specifically for educators and...

View Resource Einstein's Relativity

These web pages, authored by Nick Strobel, contain material explaining Einstein's general and special theories of relativity. Gravity and warped spacetime are included, along with explanations of the impact on observational astronomy. This is part of Astronomy Notes, an educational resource for introductory astronomy classes. This is a great resource for instructors looking to enhance their...

View Resource Physics Demonstrations-Motion

This page contains procedures for setting up 20 demonstrations relating to motion. Designed for use in the introductory physics classroom, each demonstration is written in a lesson-plan format and has been fully tested in the classroom. The items were selected for inclusion because they are enjoyable, highly illustrative of key concepts taught in a classical mechanics course, and for simplicity...
