Tracker Video Analysis gives students a real edge over traditional video modeling. First, capture a digital file, calibrate scale, and define axes. Now the fun part: students define force expressions & initial conditions, then watch the model draw and overlay itself on the video. Great way to directly compare the model with real-world motion!
Free, simulation tool developed to help students grasp underlying concepts necessary to approach and solve heat transfer problems.
Micrometer Model - Nov 3, 2014
This interactive model is a great way to give students virtual practice in using a micrometer. Perform measurements, then check your accuracy.
Virtual Microscope - Jul 7, 2014
Robust free tool to explore high-resolution images produced by electron, fluorescence, and atomic force microscopes. Datasets are shared via Java RE.
EjsS Reader for Mobile Platforms - Jul 6, 2014
Desmos Graphing Calculator - May 1, 2014
Versatile online calculator lets you view multiple graphs on one grid, create your own interactive graph, and easily embed your creation.
Graph Matching Motion Model - May 1, 2014
This inquiry-based simulation offers a powerful platform for helping students understand the shape and slope of motion graphs and how to interpret them. Your students will be doing a form of modeling as they "match" the motion of a red ball to that of a blue ball. Be careful -- this activity can be addictive!
SEI Clicker and Education Videos - Feb 1, 2014
Electronic student response systems have been shown to improve student engagement and attitudes toward learning. These short videos take an inside look at "clickers" in the classroom and how to use them to best advantage.
MIT Tech TV: Physics Demos - Aug 16, 2013
Beautifully-crafted videos to help kids visualize motion, wave interactions, electricity, and magnetism. Superb videography; easy to embed.
Concord Consortium: SmartGraphs - Jul 2, 2013
These digital SmartGraphs accept student inputs, then provide scaffolding to promote deep understanding of the meaning behind the graphs. Classroom tested.
