View Resource Newtonian Mechanics

Created by David P. Stern this site consists of algebra-based material at the high-school level, oriented towards astronomy and spaceflight, which explores Newton's Laws and their application. Concepts are stressed such as vectors and applications, mass and inertia, frames of reference, and clarifying centripetal vs. centrifugal forces. This is part of a wider site "From Stargazers to...

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 Physics Tutorials, University of Guelph

A series of online tutorial units with quizzes designed for students in the introductory college or university physics course. The page includes topics from math, physics, and biophysics. 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 Physics Classroom: Circular Motion

This resource guides the user through characteristics of circular motion. The same concepts and principles used to describe the motion of an object can also be used to describe and explain the motion of objects in circular pathways. This tutorial is broken into five sections addressing: the mechanics of circular motion, centripetal force, algebraic and trigonometric problems and solutions,...

View Resource PhET: Introduction to Static Electricity using Electric Field Hockey and Charges and Fields

This inquiry-based lesson plan is intended to be used in tandem with the PhET Electric Field Hockey simulation. Students place electric charges on a simulated ice field to guide a hockey puck into a goal. As they investigate charge interaction, the teacher integrates vector addition and free-body diagrams to help students understand strength and direction of the electric field around a charged...
